MEC for Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs; Mosebenzi Zwane has condemned in the strongest terms, the senseless, barbaric and brutal killing of holiday makers at a Harrismith guest house over Easter weekend. This unfortunate incident took the lives of Brian and Tilly Pope when the guest house manager allegedly turned against his own guests at Tweevly Farm killing two and injuring further two. The MEC would like to send condolences to the family of the deceased and wish Brian`s son Warren and his wife Marlene who are injured a speedy recovery. MEC Zwane says this tragic incident blemishes the tourism and hospitality industry in the Free State unnecessarily. He has commended the police for the good work done in apprehending the suspect. He says it is every Free Stater`s responsibility to make sure that every single person who visits this province feels save and welcome.
