Household debtors are once again in Msunduzi Municipality's crosshairs as the City seeks to collect outstanding debt.

Msunduzi is still struggling to get many of its debtors to pay what they owe for water and electricity. The debtors’ closing balance in December was sitting at R5,2 billion.

This includes the debt owed by 3 921 registered indigents, businesses, households as well as government entities and departments.

Senior finance manager, Sifiso Khoza, on Tuesday told council that the municipality should be collecting 100% of its debt monthly.
