1. North Korean gymnast flees to South Korea by pole vaulting over border

A gymnast from North Korea managed to successfully flee the country by pole vaulting over a 3.7-metre fence into South Korea. The 20-something-year-old male managed to overcome one of the world’s most heavily guarded borders and mounds of barbed wire, making it to the other side, without even triggering any sensors. 

2. Construction of new uMhlanga Lagoon Nature Reserve boardwalk underway

Building of the new uMhlanga Lagoon Nature Reserve boardwalk officially began earlier this month. This community-focused and funded project is designed to enhance the area’s environmental integrity and provide a lovely ‘walk-in-the-trees’ experience for local citizens and tourists to enjoy. The project’s initial funding of R345,000 was raised by community-minded stakeholders, businesses, and contributors. This amount will see the first 81m of the 1km long, 1,8m wide boardwalk built by mid-December.
