Durban - Newly elected eThekwini mayor, Mxolisi Kaunda, has vowed to tackle the city's chaotic billing system and problems around refuse removal in uMlazi as his new administration hit the ground on Tuesday.
Mxolisi chaired his inaugural executive committee (Exco) meeting on Tuesday morning at the Moses Mabhida Stadium’s media lounge where the chairpersons for the new committees were being appointed.
The committees, which are not to exceed the number of the members of Exco, will relay community issues to Exco and then to council for approval.
Kaunda said the revenue billing system, refuse removal, and problem buildings will get priority from the new leadership.
Over the past few months after the city switched the system that bills ratepayers for electricity and other services, many people have come forward with bills that sometimes went into millions of rands.
