The Ministry of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA) has noted with concern media reports related to non-payment of workers by some municipalities.
CoGTA is committed to its role of supporting provinces and Municipalities to fulfill their obligations, including payment of workers. CoGTA emphasised that as a caring government, we cannot accept our employees to be exposed to the uncertainty of not being able to receive their salaries.
National CoGTA therefore has been engaging with provincial departments to establish the veracity of the reports, and will take the necessary measures provided within the principles of Co-operative government to intervene.
