Out of Africa…
Well, many fansite since last year is repeating information that perhaps Michael is a shareholder of one of the most prestigious hotels in South Africa.
I am very interested in this information because I do not believe in debt by Michael as a possible cause falsification of death.
So, what is this mythical hotel. Let’s see.
By reviewing multiple pages in google I found only one mention of Share-holding is Michael Jackson.
“The Table Bay Hotel in Cape Town, The Palace of the Lost City at Sun City and The Royal Livingstone at the Victoria Falls in Zambia are the three 5-star Sun International destinations that shape the Route of the African Sun. As you chase the African Sun you will
come to appreciate the sterling service and unparalleled excellence that all three diverse destinations offer.”
In a world travel guide Frommer’s South Africa, 5th Edition has a note:
“Sun City & The Palace of the Lost CityDeveloped by Sol Kerzner, the boxer-turned-businessman known locally as the “Sun King,” who capitalized on South Africa’s stern antigambling laws by situating Sun City in the then homeland of Bophuthatswana, Sun City is unlikely to bowl over anyone who’s ever been to Vegas, but it continues to rake in visitors and Bollywood film crews who love its larger than life atmosphere. The resort is relatively easy to get around, with shuttle buses constantly moving from one end to the next. A “sky train” takes visitors without cars from the entrance to the entertainment center. Closest to the entrance are the Kwena Crocodile Sanctuary, Waterworld, and The Cabanas, followed by the tacky Sun City Hotel, Casino, and world-famous Gary Player Golf Club. Adjoining this club to the north is the more upmarket Cascades Hotel and Entertainment Centre, from where you enter the grounds of the Palace of the Lost City — for most visitors, the star attraction.
The Palace was built 12 years after Sun City opened, and the sheer magnitude of its opulence is proof of the amount of money taken from those frequenting Sun City’s slot machines and tables. Separated from the rest of the resort by “The Bridge of Time” — a large stone structure that shudders and rumbles at preappointed times from a mythical earthquake, and is lined with a “guard of honor” of carved elephants — the Palace is entered through the massive Mighty Kong Gates. Looking down on the rivers and jungle vegetation, it’s hard to imagine that 15 years ago this was nothing but a dusty, rocky plain. From the bridge, you can clearly see the “Valley of Waves,” where landlocked Gautengers learn to “surf” on simulated waves, tan on man-made beaches, and hurtle down steep waterslides, reaching speeds of up to 35kmph (22 mph; note that the Valley is closed in winter). In the distance, overlooking a lake filled with live flamingos, is the majestic Palace, with what seems like an entire jungle of carved animals in attendance. Surrounding the Palace is what must be the most artfully landscaped garden in Africa, featuring five trails through 22 different sections of forest. The theme (that of a “lost city” that has been rediscovered and restored) is sometimes carried to ridiculous extremes, but the craftsmanship is world-class; the fantasy landscape is quite overwhelming. With Michael Jackson a majority shareholder, things can only get weirder.”
“As one of the king’s subjects you will stay in a room that matches your status;
338 rooms offer luxury ranging from just plain standard (and plain they are by comparison) to the king’s suite which was good enough for Michael Jackson.”
Summing up a little I would say – the rumors about 300 million of debt as they were and still rumors created by TMZ and Michael. No court has not been the reality for the debts after 25.06.2009, but what betrayed TMZ … I leave for thought. Michael may well be a shareholder, and under an assumed name…
