NGO Slams Hotel for Mocking the Poor

A NGO joins a growing chorus of international disdain against a Bloemfontein hotel, which lures wealthy guests with the promise of an ‘experience of a lifetime’

The United Kingdom-based Winnie Mabaso Foundation, which works with impoverished children in South Africa, has joined a growing chorus of international disdain against Emoya Luxury Hotel and Spa in Bloemfontein, which has been luring wealthy guests with the promise of an ‘experience of a lifetime’.

In an open letter this week, Lisa Ashton, who founded the Foundation with late Johannesburg charity worker, Winnie Mabaso, lambasted Emoya for the ‘obscene experience’ it offers.

Meanwhile, the hotel owner, Buks Westraad, who the Foundation accuses of making a total mockery of people living under utter poverty, says that like other South African entrepreneurs in tourism, he is trying to make something positive from a negative perception.
