RUSTENBURG - The Bojanala Platinum District Municipality in North West did not pay workers their July salaries on Thursday.
In a letter to the employees and councillors, municipal manager Pogiso Shikwane said payment of salaries for July would be delayed until a date to be confirmed.
Shikwane said the municipality was solely dependent on the equitable share as its main revenue.
The provincial treasury withheld the equitable share to Bojanala and eight other municipalities in North West due to non-compliance.
Shikwane said they trusted that the non-payment of salaries would be resolved at the earliest convenience as they were attending to the directives of the provincial treasury relating to non-compliance to ensure that operations of the municipality were restored back to normal.
