//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: email@example.com or on our website poll. You can also write to the Municipal Manager.

On Friday 10 April at around 12h14, an emergency exercise (Riots & Motor Vehicle Accident) was held in Progress, at the corner of Upington 26 & Strokroos Streets by //Khara Hais Municipal Departments and its external role players.
The name of the Exercise was “BONA BATHO / KYK ONS MENSE”. These were a real reflection of the exercise name, because road users and community members did not adhere to the National Road Traffic Act and Gatherings Act, or neither bothered to practice safety.
Road users did not reduce their speed while seeing their vision were obstructed by smoke from burning tires. Community members saw the riot and accident, but still put their lives at risk by entering the hot zone (got close to accident scene) before it were cordoned off by SAPD officials on their arrival.
Objective of the exercise:
To empower our community members and all role players (Disciplines) to be more resilient and aware of the different dangers (incidents) that we can found ourselves in when facing real situations and to test the response of different role players.
To ensure that community members are well-informed,
