  • Nudism in full swing in KZN as opposition backs down

    After bringing in police to arrest nudists when the province's first legal nudist beach opened in April, threatening to lodge a complaint with the public protector and appeal to the Hibiscus Coast Municipality to change its approval, the opposition group has "vanished". The Concerned Citizens Group, which claimed to represent thousands of residents in towns along the province's South Coast, has not "put a stop" to the nudist beach, as it had planned to do. "It seems as if all those who were opposing the beach have ridden into the sunset," said SA National Naturists Association chairman Serge Pavlovic yesterday.

The Fortuner certainly looks more macho wearing its bakkie-sibling face, and dare we say it would strike a better chord with the current version's fan base?
