KOUGAMunicipality will be re-registering residents for free basic services over the next five months.

Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen said the municipality would be conducting an Equitable Shares (EQS) drive from February to June 2018 so as to ensure that all qualifying residents receive free basic services.

“It is very important that all residents who already receive EQS, re-register during this time so that they continue receiving the free services. New applications are also invited,” she said.
