OVER the past week, Ugu held meetings with businessmen and the CEO of D Street Media Group, Dexter Davis, from the United States, to discuss big investment plans that are in the pipeline for Ugu District.

Davis is promising to invest in a multimillion-rand project here.

Last Thursday Davis and his friend Senzo Zindela of Ugu Film Festival met with Ugu managers Mondli Ncane, Dudu Ngcobo and Nomzamo Zwane, to talk about an investment plan they are working on.

Zindela confirmed that Davis returned to the South Coast last week and he was showing Davis around the area.

Zindela confirmed Davis’s visit and said it had to do with business, however, he did not specify anything definite.

“Davis was on the South Coast. His last visit [here] was at the 2015 Ugu Film Festival, however, I cannot say more about this visit besides that it was for business,” said Zindela­.

Davis’s visit is allegedly in connection with the shooting of his film, The Blue Mauritius.

Some of the investment talks with Davis were between Ugu Municipality, Ray Nkonyeni and Ugu South Coast Development Agency chair, Sipho Nzimande.

Ugu District Youth Manager Mondli Ncane said on a Facebook post that they are proud of Zindela for playing a vital role in the process ensuring that the development of the film industry in the area takes place and will benefit the community, not only individuals.
