Durban metro police have apparently threatened to disrupt this weekend’s Top Gear motoring show as part of a campaign to kick their boss, Eugene Nzama, off the force.

The festival has in previous years been a huge tourism draw; 20 000 people were reported to have visited the city for the show in 2012.

Durban Tourism head Phillip Sithole has, however, downplayed the threats, and said contingency plans were in place.
