Mayor Themba Njilo announced an amnesty period yesterday to indigent residents of the Msunduzi municipality which are overdue on their services bill.

According to Njilo, the municipality has around 180 000 customers on its books and believes this number will increase once more customers take advantage of the amnesty.  Many customers use services without a meter, which means the authorities have no way of billing for said services.

Once the amnesty period has lapsed, the municipality plans a council-wide audit and defaulting clients will be dealt with.

Njilo hopes to recover around R250 million during the amnesty period, predicting that the remainder, or around R2billion of the outstanding debt will be written off.

Njilo made it clear that government departments will not be able to benefit from the amnesty – their outstanding bills are due and payable immediately.
