LISTEN: De Lille on when water offenders names will be released

Executive Mayor Particia De Lille said fines of up to R2 000 have been issued to people not adhering to the water restrictions. The City has vowed to name and shame offenders.

Once those issued with fines ranging between R500 and R2 000 have paid their admission of guilt fines, we will [by law] be able to name them.

It is unacceptable that people are still not adhering to restrictions. But we can name buildings, streets and areas where fines have been issued.
