Municipality's on name and shame campaign to collect debt

2011-08-05 00:00

MSUNDUZI Municipality has embarked on a “revenue enhancement programme” to recover monies owed to the it by naming and shaming various businesses and individuals who have outstanding bills. It has placed an advert in today’s Witness with the first list of individuals and companies that owe the municipality for electricity and water accounts as well as rates.

As an initial step in the debt recovery process, the municipality has addressed letters of demand to many people or organisations that are indebted for such charges.

Attempts to get hold of the acting municipal manager, Thokozani Maseko, and the administrator, Sibusiso Sithole, for comment on the campaign were unsuccessful at the time of going to print.

For the full list of names see page 11. — Witness Reporter.
