Beware! Cash for jobs scam in emfuleni

Desperate for jobs, many Emfuleni residents have fallen victim to a jobs-for-cash scam operated by criminals in our towns. It all starts with an SMS circulated to jobseekers, inviting them to a supposed interview for employment with the municipality.

Despite the municipality issuing a strongly-worded statement distancing itself from the scam, residents are still enquiring about the so-called interviews for which they were asked to pay anything between R3 000 to R4 000.

Indigent registration: Register and renew for access to free services

The municipality encourages residents who cannot afford to pay for municipal services rendered to register on our indigent database. Those who have registered are reminded that such registration requires annual renewal for the municipality to ascertain whether your financial situation has improved.

By registering on our indigent database, you qualify for free services and exemption on payment of some municipal services. Our Indigents Policy has been benchmarked against other municipalities and has been amended to accommodate the current socio-economic realities facing our area. We have been implementing this policy from the 1st July 2017 onwards.
