Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
THE popular Bostons Lodge, a haven for travellers, truckers and tourists in the heart of the diamond fields of Northern Cape, comes up for auction shortly.
This landmark property is strategically close to Jan Kempdorp, north of Kimberley, a short journey from Warrenton and in the middle of the productive Vaalharts Valley with its vast agricultural, mining and tourism industries.
The sale takes place next Thursday November 12 and bidders are invited by Park Village Auctions (PVA), which has the mandate, to gather at The Wanderers Club in Johannesburg at 11am.
"Bostons, as the lodge is fondly known, could hardly be more strategically situated at the intersection of the road routes centres such as Vryburg, Mafikeng, Christiana, Kimberley and beyond," says Lawrence Wulfsohn of PVA property division.
"The lodge has a reputation for quality accommodation for the business traveller, families or groups and, of course, the trucking and transport sector and it's a welcome retreat en route to and from the Kalahari region, Namibia and Western Cape.
"Facilities-wise, the en-suite lodge rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and fully serviced.
"The lodge restaurants, bars, stage and other facilities cater for weddings, conferences and functions of all kinds.
"Moreover, there is ample under-roof parking and good security," Wulfsohn said.
Jan Kempdorp itself is an idyllic town with a robust local economy serving the mining and agricultural communities of the region.
"We see this as a tremendous opportunity for investors seeking a profitable business in a region which has unique attractions and character. We are expecting a good turnout of bidders on the day," said Wulfsohn.
