Please pay- pleads the mayor

The executive mayor, Cllr Lindiwe Ntshalintshali, has made a passionate plea to senior citizens to be ambassadors of the municipality and spread the message in their communities to pay for electricity and services.

Ntshalintshali praised senior citizens for their loyalty and commitment to pay for services despite operating on a tight budget.

“You, the elderly are the most honest people and we know that you pay for your services and electricity, but we appeal to you to spread the message and influence the community to also pay. Spread the message in your churches and in your burial society clubs, tell youngsters that they should pay,” she said.

Ntshalintshali hosted senior citizens, donated 500 blankets, wheelchairs and walking sticks, donated by the Witbank Muslim Community and the Al-Imdaad Foundation.

She also told the elderly to discourage communities from setting alight government infrastructure when they protest.

Ntshalintshali announced that the municipality has started with load shedding in areas where payment levels were low and there is a high number of illegal connections.

“For two hours in the morning and another two hours in the evening those affected areas would not have electricity until they improve their payment level,” she said.
