Turf war derails plans for Mpumalanga’s world heritage site

Johannesburg- The future of Mpumalanga’s world heritage site remains uncertain following disagreements over who should be in charge between landowners and the Mpumalanga provincial government.

As South Africa’s 10th World Heritage site, Barberton Makhonjwa Mountains was inducted at the 42nd United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco) World Heritage Committee meeting in 2018.

The Barberton Makhonjwa Mountains World Heritage Site, comprising 113 000-hectare property on the Barberton Greenstone Belt, is endowed with a picturesque range of small to medium hills and mountains that cover about 80% of Mpumalanga.
