Tourism MEC Sihle Zikalala says more needs to be done to uplift the tourism sector in rural areas.

Zikalala was speaking to journalists as he is part of the Umthayi Amarula Festival in Manguza, North of the province, yesterday.

He says this festival will see over 15 thousand people participating who also come from neighbouring countries in Swaziland and Mozambique.

Zikalala says they are supporting this initiative because it’s not only boosting the economy but also building relationships with other countries.
