The South African tourism, police, and other stakeholders on Thursday launched some safety plans to ensure visitors are safe upon their visit in the country.

The plan was launched in Pretoria by the Minister of Tourism, Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane and Minister of Police, Bheki Cele.

The plan introduces measures to detect early warning, reporting incidents and sharing information on potential risks.

“The pilot interventions include use of technology to respond to the challenges, integration and deployment of tourism monitors at private establishments,” said Kubayi-Ngubane.

“We want to emphasize the importance of collaborative effort in dealing decisively with the safety of our visitors and to ensure that South Africa remains a destination of choice , and committed to bring in more partners into the fight against crime in general and tourism.”

Kubayi-Ngubane said the safety plan has proactive preventative measures that will ensure quick and effective operational response.

Cele said they have several initiatives to ensure that people in various tourist resorts are safe, and all crime hot-spots will be monitored by the police.

“A special police unit was established to monitor people traveling from OR Tambo International Airport with much success,” he said. Enditem
