Prince Charles to visit SA

iol pic wld prince charles1 Reuters Britain's Prince Charles.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla will visit South Africa next month, after making a trip to Arab countries in the Gulf, the British High Commission in Pretoria said on Thursday.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will visit Tanzania immediately after the trip to South Africa, which will last from November 2 to 6. They will arrive in Africa after visiting Kuwait and Qatar.

The trip will focus on job creation, investment, education, disadvantaged people and environmental issues, according to the statement.

Prince Charles officially visited South Africa in 1997 and Tanzania in 1984. While Camilla has been to South Africa privately, this will be her first official trip and she has never been to Tanzania.Author: Shabtai Gold – Sapa-dpa

@dave, no you obviously need all the money you can get, your country is in financial trouble, not so, having to support the lazy who prefer living on the dole rather than finding a job? I agree that our government is corrupt, but that doesn't mean we all are. There are actually honest people who have worked their butts off to make a living, you can stick your money up your pommy a**e! D**s

RAther he should talk about curruption, the non granting of visa to people who make a positive difference, tenderpreneurship, secrecy bills, and the like. only then will his visit maybe have a slight tiny impact ?.. SA does not need financial support from any country, if corruption is tackled. see the 30bn losses per year we suffer thanks to the anc government..

Focus will be on "job creation, Investment, Education and Disadvantaged people". This is great as the ANC have no clue in these matters. Please ensure that the "Whites" are recognized as the new disadvantaged people. Racist policies like AA, BEE have made it like that since 1994.

Charles is a sensitive soul, so do not expect of him to play the diplomat. Allow him time to re-visit the world of his erstwhile mentor , Laurens van der Post.

Will he visit the concentration camps where thousands of people died during the Anglo Boer war too? We don't need old fart and old fart's wife here. It's because of british oppression in the early part of the century that S A's history is what it is today.we don't want you here!
