Connection Bridge between Rosedale and Paballelo


The long awaited connection bridge between Rosedale and Paballelo was finally opened by The speaker and other councillors of //Khara Hais Municipality on Friday 8 May 2015. It was attended by many community members from both Rosedale and Paballelo. The speaker told the crowd that since he can remember coming into Council in 2000, this bridge, or actually that time a road, was already a popular demand by the members of the community. He said that the connection road had to realise, that’s why the council of //Khara Hais fought hard for it. There were quite the checklist to be ticked off before the connection road could even be considered. It was then found that it should be a bridge built over an International Railway, to connect the two suburbs together. Then a few years and around R25 000 000.00 later, a bridged was build that would forever break the barrier that was caused by ‘apartheid’ a few decades ago.Read more…

Should Council Sell Die Eiland Holiday Resort?


//Khara Hais Municipality would like to get the opinion of the community regarding the selling of Die Eiland Holiday Resort, so that Council can get an idea about how the public feel about this matter.

Die Eiland is a non-core function, and therefore does not belong to a municipality. It was established several decades ago, providing accommodation to visitors and tourists before private resorts and especially guest houses got their existence in Upington. The Tourism environment has thus become much more competitive with a wider choice of accommodation facilities. That is the main reason why the facilities at Die Eiland Holiday Resort is no more in a good condition. The number of the visitors decreased as well as the income from the resort. If the sale would realise, the workers of Die Eiland Holiday Resort will be absorbed into the municipality.
The public can submit their comments by email on or before 20 May 2015 to: communications@kharahais.gov.za or on our website poll. You can also write to the Municipal Manager.
