Greyhound racing to be legal soon?
28 January 2009
The Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) will conduct the second round of public consultations on the possible legalisation of greyhound racing in South Africa.
The consultations will be held in Gauteng, Free State, North West, Eastern Cape, Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal in February and March 2009.
Last year, the dti appointed the University of the Free State, Faculty of Law, under the supervision of Prof Elizabeth Snyman-Van Deventer to conduct a research study on the possible legislation of greyhound racing in the country. Interested members of the public and various associations submitted their inputs through emails and faxes.
“the dti has deemed it necessary to broaden the consultation process and hold public consultations in which members of the public and interested groupings can submit their input on the legalisation of greyhound racing prior to the finalisation of the research study,” said the Director of Regulated Industries Mpho Mosing in the dti.
The public consultations will take place as follows:
6 February 2009, 9h00-12h30, Protea Edward Hotel, Durban
