Tshwane Historical Debt Ruling: DA invites submissions from affected residents

DA Tshwane


The Democratic Alliance (DA) invites any Tshwane residents who are affected by the historical debt ruling handed down by the North Gauteng High Court to contact the DA for assistance.


The recent ruling has corrected the misconception that homeowners are liable for a previous owner’s unpaid municipal debt.


It also prevents the city from refusing to connect services for the new property owners where this debt remains unpaid.


The City of Tshwane now has a responsibility to refund those persons who have been subject to this unjust requirement prior to this ruling.


Affected members of the public are urged to contact me with their request for a refund and details of their particular case by emailing: adrianarandall@lantic.net.
