It is with great sadness and sorrow that we have to inform our members that Joe Motsogi a member of IPTGSA passed away yesterday, a great stalwart and forward-looking person in our tourist guiding industry. Joe will be missed by many. Condolences to Sofie and the family
Today we advise fellow Tourists Guides of the passing of our dear colleague, Martin Fine. He suffered a stroke as a result of a blood clot and unfortunately was not able to recover. Condolences to his wife and family.
The committee would like to congratulate all the members that have completed their panel interviews on 21 October 2020 by attending the meetings in Rosebank W17 Firehouse and W17 Watershed in Cape town.
It has come to the fore during the COVID 19 pandemic that many tourist guides do not have adequate financial accounting records, as most tourist guides operate under their own names and depend on operators that employ the tourist guide for payment and taxes.
