No arrests have yet been made after a 39-year-old tourist was shot in the leg in the Sodwana Bay section of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, KwaZulu-Natal.
It is believed the unidentified tourist was awoken by noises at the campsite at about 10.30pm on Sunday, Zululand Observer reported.
The tourist reportedly zipped open his tent and was met by a gun-wielding intruder. A scuffle ensued, during which the intruder shot the victim in the leg.
He was rushed to hospital in Richards Bay in a critical condition, where he underwent emergency surgery on Monday to remove the bullet.
Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife conservation authority spokesperson Musa Mntambo said: “We are grateful that our guest was not killed and put our faith in the police that they will apprehend the suspect soon.”
KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Colonel Jay said a case of attempted robbery and attempted murder was under investigation.
Police are constantly patrolling the area to make sure those visiting the park feel safe, added Naicker.

This is a good response...how long that will last, who knows.

But ja, only the drastic wakeup of community leaders will solve this sort of thing, IMO.
