I wish her every success in her new role at SA Tourism," says Themba Khumalo, acting chief executive officer.

    "The time to re-engineer the global positioning of South Africa and the rest of the African continent has come, and should be led by SA Tourism. It is time for the re-birth of the industry and the recalibration of the people in the sector and I am looking forward to being a part of this," said Ndlovu.
