In the current economic circumstances with record unemployment,how do the municipalities expect an increase when the unemployed tenant do not have an income to even feed his family?Its inhumane.The municipalities should let the governing party pay for any increases.The anc government is afterall responsible for the economic crisis.

Funds must be gained through recoveries from corrupt people who stole from COCT money, who stole from SOEs, who stole cables from ESKOM and Transnet, and who damaged and burned schools and public buildings and guilty people must be fired and placed on red lists. Bloated government SOEs and their salaries must be brought in line with private sector salaries. Innocent inhabitants cannot be held at ransom and be expected to pay for these criminals. The rate of jailed sentences to crimes committed must be increased to at least 70%, not the current 2%.

The problem is not a lack of funds, but corruption, theft and sabotage. The customer cannot be held liable for failures in leadership in all levels of government and SOEs . Accountability and criminal prosecution of offenders is the only way to stop the haemorrhaging of funds.

Property rates
We are retired business owners, and are struggling to keep up with the current rates as it is far too high. The business was badly affected by the pandemic and other economic factors, and we know we are still amongst the fortunate ones who still managed to retain our home. Officials who work in sheltered employment funded by taxpayers money could nor care less about the plight of the poor, their sole objective is to preserve their own cushy lifestyles. Please do not increase rates, you will force many homeowners out of their homes
