Delay in Joburg bills

Johannesburg - There will be a delay in the delivery of municipal accounts in Johannesburg because of a strike by post office workers, the city said on Friday.

"Customers will be receiving their monthly statements late and, in some cases, after the due date," revenue department spokesperson Kgamanyane Maphologela said in a statement.

"The City of Johannesburg would like to apologise to all its customers who have been adversely affected by these delays."

Post office contract workers are demanding that their contract positions become permanent jobs.
