Service delivery
What justify tarrif increases. The service provided are appalling.

Municipal collapse
If you know a bit about common law, you'll understand that taxes and all these levies that we pay are illegal.
And your municipalities are failing miserably.

Service delivery
I know there are almost no service delivery and maintenance as it stands at the moment. It is because of a lack of funds. So they say. But we all know what the true reason is. Corruption. If we freeze the rates and taxes, there will be absolutely NO service delivery. No, instead of freezing the rates and taxes, rather redirect it to a community forum that can take over the municipal duties. Then, sort out the looting, thievery and corruption before the funds are given to municipality again.

Service delivery
People who pay their property rates and taxes to the municipalities are all from the formal areas. But a large portion of that money is not being spent in the area it's collected from.
Instead, a large portion is spent in the informal areas where no rates and taxes have been collected.
It's easy to see why the service deliveries are lacking in the formal areas, due to the reduced budget.
Informal areas are getting new roads and infrastructure, while the formal sector gets neglected and the infrastructure decays.

It's easy to pay rates and taxes when you trust the government to responsibly manage funds without corruption. However, if they can't manage what they already have, they can't be trusted with more money. I believe municipalities should be run like businesses, not hobbies. They should be smaller, with money generated from a town or city being spent within that same area. I don't believe the centralized, big wallet approach is effective.

How is it possible that the incompetent, overpaid people in the Civil Service can be so oblivious of the burden placed on the taxpayer, many of whom are on fixed incomes, to be continually increasing rates and taxes? Has it not occurred to them that the Country could run out of money?
