Description: This Kikuyu was cleared out of a drainage ditch on the park boundary and dumped in the Fynbos by SANParks contractors. It has now lain there for several weeks and is beginning to grow: directly into the Fynbos which was Kikuyu free until now. This is an aggressive invader: that this is happening is just incomprehensible!
