Sandton companies’ water & power supply cut off due to recoup of R38BN

The City of Joburg has taken a no-nonsense approach and is claiming back more than R38 billion which businesses, residents and government departments in Sandton owe for municipal services.

As part of the #BuyaMthetho campaign, Joburg Mayor Mpho Phalatse and City officials embarked on a revenue-collection operation on Wednesday, targeting ratepayers that have outstanding municipal accounts.

The officials were Public Safety MMC David Tembe, Finance and IT MMC Julie Suddaby and Environment Infrastructure Service Department (EISD) MMC Michael Sun.

Their first stop was at the SA Local Authorities (SALA) Pension Fund offices in Sandown, which owes R7.4 million for rates, water and refuse, according to the City.
