The CEO of South African Tourism, Thulani Nzima, has defended the decrease of tourists visiting the country.
The demand for local tourism services however shows no major decline due to immigration reform.
This view is supported by Statistics South Africa’s most recent release on migration and tourism.
Nzima argued that the numbers aren't up to the period of June.
He also conceded that numbers are down but couldn’t attribute that to the new law.
