Spokesperson Nthatisi Modingoane says no agents have been assigned to properties to disconnect water or electricity supply.

The City of Johannesburg has warned residents against scammers who claim to be municipal agents, threatening to cut off people services unless they pay.

Nthatisi Modingoane, City of Joburg spokesperson, no agents have been assigned to properties to disconnect water or electricity supply.

One of the things we want to categorically state to residents is that there is been no credit control at this stage aligning with COVID-19 regulations.

He warned that these criminals were targeting suburban areas and proposed people should report scammers to the police officials if they come across such an incident.

Modingoane also spoke of the city’s new tariff increases in which he says the city is not making any profit or margin from it.

That’s why we always say to residents those that can still afford to pay, please help us so that we are able to have a proper cashflow and be able to continuously provide services for a sustainable state.
