The High Court in Pretoria granted an interdict to AfriForum and trade union Solidarity that prevents the payment of any fees from the South African Department of Tourism’s equity fund. This after the two organisations launched an urgent application after the minister of Tourism announced that the department’s fund for the recovery of the tourism sector would only be accessible to people who qualify for black economic empowerment. Jacques Broodryk says using race as a criterion to reform a Covid-19-stricken sector is morally unjustifiable.
