25 Nov 2019 in Where We Govern

The indigent citizens of the City of Tshwane are set for massive debt relief exceeding R390 million owed to the municipality for services.

Executive mayor Stevens Mokgalapa said his administration would take a report to Thursday’s council meeting to have nearly half a billion rand of arrears cleared from indigent property owners.

Coming immediately after the launch of a campaign to encourage residents to get into the habit of paying the City for services on Thursday in Church Square, Mokgalapa said the City also had a social responsibility to clear arrears.
