Registration for City of Joburg's debt rehabilitation programme to close soon
The City of Johannesburg's says registration for its debt rehabilitation programme will close on 30 November 2019.
The programme will relieve struggling residents of either all or half of their debt if they meet certain criteria.
Part of the criteria includes customers who have been in arrears for more than 90 days, have a household gross income of between R4,750 and R22,000 per month.
Finance MMC Funzela Ngobeni explains the debt relief process.
Once you have been approved and have gone through the application process and met all the criteria, we give you 50% write-off right there and then, the rest of the 50% will be written off over a period of three years. It will be based on the behaviour of the consumer.Funzela Ngobeni, Finance MMC - City of Johannesburg
We have made ourselves available through our customer service centres, we are now extending our operating hours precisely because we want our residents to come in their numbers. We will be operating even on Saturdays as well from 07:30 until 15:30.Funzela Ngobeni, Finance MMC - City of Johannesburg
