This year they are saying Africans need to tell their own stories and in telling their stories and being authentic. This is how Africa will be valuable to the rest of the world. It is small things like making the community on the ground understand their own value and where they fit in the value chain of tourism.Phemelo Motene, 702 Weekend Breakfast host
Repost @SATravelTrade: This mural forms part of a legacy project that South African Tourism would like to showcase as the hosts of #Indaba19. It is also intended to be a catalyst for starting more conversations on the importance of storytelling through the arts. #AfricaMovesYou pic.twitter.com/ds4ObVjB4S— Dept of Tourism (@Tourism_gov_za) May 2, 2019
