Conflict erupts in South Africa following Trevor Noah tourist agreement

A suggestion to give Trevor Noah, a famous comedian who has won an Emmy award, 33 million rand ($1. 7m, £13m) to promote South Africa as a place for people to visit has created a big controversy in the country.

South Africa’s Tourism Minister, Patricia de Lille, told parliament that they want to pay Trevor Noah to appear in a short video promoting tourism in South Africa.

A lot of MPs have disagreed with the idea, but Ms de Lille says that the South African comedian and TV host won’t receive money from the government.

She said that he would get paid using money from a private organization that represents the travel and tourism businesses in South Africa.

Some people in South Africa have also expressed their disapproval of the planned agreement on social media, saying that it is pointless. Some people say that its timing is not considerate because many South Africans are having money problems.

We hope the government doesn’t spend money we don’t have on things that aren’t useful. We are not concerned about his identity, but the country is in a state of chaos. They don’t have electricity and jobs, but they have 33 million to give to Trevor Noah. “What has Trevor Noah done to make this country better. ” a user on Twitter asked.

However, some people in South Africa believe that Noah’s popularity in Hollywood could help attract more tourists to the country.

In March, Noah and tennis star Roger Federer, who have both South African and Swiss nationalities, appeared in a campaign promoting Switzerland as a place to visit.
