With over 400 trucks passing daily through the Ariamsvlei and Noordower borders, the Kharas region is particularly vulnerable to Covid-19 infections. Its against this background that the //Kharas Regional council recently engaged key stakeholders to observe and discuss the situation at the region’s borders.
Earlier this month, WBCG CEO, Mbahupu Tjivikua visited the borders to assess the situation on the ground. It came to light that the infrastructure at the Ariamsvlei border post is in dire need of an upgrade and an adequate quarantine facility.
Last week, a delegation led by Honorable Councilor Jan Scholtz and Mr. Tjivikua, held high level discussions with relevant government ministries and SOEs to raise concerns about the inadequate facilities that are not only putting the region at risk but are also contributing to border inefficiencies.
The meetings further looked at the impact and preventative measures regarding the spread of Covid-19 at the southern borders of the country. Supplementary discussions orbited on current projects undertaken by these stakeholders as well as future projects and potential collaborative opportunities in the region.
