Msinsi Holdings (SOC) Ltd, trading as Msinsi Resorts and Game Reserves, was established in 1992. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of the South African state entity, Umgeni Water.
Msinsi Holdings is tasked with managing the water resources around Umgeni Water owned or managed dams. A water resource as defined by the SA National Water Act (No.36 of 1998) includes dams as well as the areas surrounding dams, and especially their surface water, wetlands, rivers and other water.
Msinsi’s water-resource management assists its parent company Umgeni Water in delivering on its mandate to provide innovative, sustainable, effective and affordable water, sanitation and related services. These, in turn, must meet the South African-National Development objectives as part of the Department of Water and Environmental Affairs National Water Resource Strategy. Msinsi joins Umgeni Water in striving to fulfil the ultimate vision of this strategy: “Managing Water for an equitable and sustainable future.”
Msinsi’s strategic objectives and operations are derived from the National Water Act. It states that the person who owns, controls, occupies or uses a water resource is responsible for:
- Protecting the aquatic and associated ecosystems and their biological diversity;
- Reducing and preventing pollution and degradation of the water resources;
- Allowing and controlling access to the dams for recreational purposes, and making reasonable charges for the use of and entry and use of the water surface.
