“I now declare Arandis open”

Buildings are inaugurated, ships are launched and people installed in positions of honour. Have you ever heard of officially opening a town? Remarkable but true.

Arandis was officially opened on 22 June 1979.
The Chairman of Rössing Group, Mr. R.S. Walker (MBE), unveiled a plaque marking the official opening of the Arandis Township.
Arandis today is a bustling town, geared for invest-ment to diversify its micro-economy and end its dependence on uranium mines in the area, of which Rössing and Husab are the biggest.
