Cresta Marakanelo Limited wishes to inform our valued stakeholders of an incident that took place on Friday 13th September 2019, at approximately 18.45pm, where a portion of the roof above Madiba conference room at Cresta Mahalapye Hotel collapsed.

Both the conference room and the adjacent kitchen were affected.

There was no injury to any staff or guest and limited damage to the Hotel was recorded. This was due to proactive measures that were taken by Management, after Hotel maintenance reported a major crack in one section of the conference room ceiling.

All conference room contents were removed and access to the room was blocked. A structural engineer was subsequently called. Investigations into the root cause of the roof collapse are ongoing, with a view to implement immediate remedial preventive works, and subsequent restoration of the roof structure.


The Cresta Marakanelo Limited Board of Directors and its Management would like to take this time to assure our valued stakeholders that operations at Cresta Mahalapye Hotel continue, with the necessary due diligence being followed on the way forward.

We appreciate the support we have received from the public thus far; and will continue to provide updates on the developing activities.
