Indigent support register

The Council further took note of the indigent support register report that was outlining the process followed when the indigent application were screened before they were approved to be beneficiaries.

The Council was shocked to learn that members of the community applied for indigency while some of them are employed by the government and municipalities, and some are directors of companies.

The process of screening was very important to conduct as it has saved a lot of money for the municipality.
