Councillors of the City of Johannesburg owed the municipality they govern more than R1 million on their own consumer accounts at the end of its financial year – and most of them were at least three months overdue on their payments
According to Joburg's financial statements, published this week, 26 councillors owed the city a combined R1,078,636 as of 30 June.
Just under R950,000 of that had been outstanding for more than 90 days, the city said.
During the year the city paid its councillors a combined R156 million in total remuneration.
Johannesburg now expects to write off just over R16 billion in consumer debt, after a 20% increase in the year in its provisions for debt impairment.
