SANParks driver cautioned
Date: 11th June 2014
In light of the uproar with regards to the recent YouTube video showing a South African National Parks (SANParks) vehicle forcing an elephant and a calf off the road, a full investigation was concluded, which included the studying of the footage, information from the witnesses as well as the account from the driver.
It has to be noted that certain processes were followed to determine exactly what took place and according to law a person is considered innocent until proven guilty. In this case after careful consideration the driver was found not to have transgressed the park rules.
Despite the findings the driver was cautioned and instructed to exercise more caution in the future. SANParks would like to apologise profusely to the visitors who witnessed the incident and encourages more responsible behaviour by employees and visitors alike.
If you wish to report people for breaking rules at the park please contact Johan Nel, Chief Traffic Officer, Skukuza, Tel: 013 735 4370; Cell: 073 631 8682; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or SANParks' crime-line 082 908 3053 or KNP's Emergency Call Centre on 013 735 4325.
