ASSISTANCE IN THE COLLECTION OF OUTSTANDING BALANCES

 

Enoch Mgijima Local Municipality have awarded a tender to Revenue Consulting (Pty) Ltd to collect the debts owing to the Municipality. Their appointment starts on 1 February 2016 and therefore all queries in regard to your outstanding balances will be handled by their staff from that date if your debt has been handed over.

 

Revenue Consulting (Pty) Ltd (REVCO) will shortly have their own staff positioned in the municipality. They will also be working from a call centre off the Municipal premises. You will most likely be receiving some form of request to pay either via phone call, SMS message or letter in the very near future.

 

Council and staff will give REVCO their full co-operation in this matter and ask all consumers and property holders to now get their accounts paid up to date to avoid any punitive actions being taken by the municipality to recover the amounts owing for rates and services.

Introduction to the Lukhanji Municipality
 

 

 

 

 

 

The Lukhanji Municipality came into being on 5 December 2000 and includes Queenstown, Whittlesea, Sada, Lesseyton, Ilinge and other surrounding rural areas. It is one of 8 Local Municipalities which falls under the jurisdiction of the Chris Hani District Municipality. Lukhanji is landlocked  by the Municipalities of Tsolwana and Inkwanca to the West and Emalahleni and Insika Yethu to the North and Amahlati to the East.

 

Lukhanji occupies a strategic geographical position within the Chris Hani District Municipality and covers approximately 4231 km 2 in extent. Its central location with arguably the largest urban centre (Queenstown) in the District attracts many people on a daily basis from surrounding Municipalities.

 

Situated in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, the multi-cultural municipality of Lukhanji is poised  to forge ahead as an emerging and viable industrial centre.  The majority of the industries are highly labour intensive and are able to draw on the vast manpower of a big urban and rural population. Existing industries stem mainly from the vast and varied resources of the surrounding and include manufacturers of agricultural products, office furniture, engineering and steel works and numerous others. Many of South Africa’s best cattle and sheep are bred in the area.  Beef and Dairy herds abound; mutton and wool flocks of crossbred and merino sheep proliferate. Lukhanji and its surrounding areas have a great number of tourist attractions. Various tourism development initiatives are planned.  Lukhanji is proud of its reputation as a foremost educational centre largely thanks to the many schools and numerous tertiary institutions situated in the area. 

 

Founded in early 1853 by the direction of Sir George Cathcart, Queenstown is the major commercial, administrative, and educational centre  where many Regional Departmental offices, Private and Public hospitals, District Municipal offices , consulting firms & NGOs, churches and chain stores are located. History suggests that the town intended to be a military outpost designed to protect the British subjects from attack during the time of the Frontier wars. The town was laid out around a central hexagon, which was to be the lager to which the citizens would flee in time of trouble. Although still a distinguishing feature of the town today, the hexagon was never used for its intended purpose. 1984 saw the incorporation of both Mlungisi and Ezibeleni into the town of Queenstown.

The
Chris Hani District Municipality is centrally located within the Eastern Cape Province, and as such represents a linking node to all other regions in the Province. The District is largely rural, housing concentrated urban regions, including economic hubs such as Queenstown and Cradock.

Eight local Municipalities form the Chris Hani District Municipality. The municipalities on the eastern side of the district include: Emalahleni (Indwe, Ida, Dordrecht & Lady Frere settlement),  Engcobo (Ngcobo, All Saints & Clarkebury settlements), Intsika Yethu  (Tsomo and Cofimvaba towns) and Sakhisizwe (Cala and Elliot town). Those municipalities located on the western side of the district include: Inxuba Yethemba  (Cradock and Middelburg, Inkwanca (Molteno and Sterkstroom town) and Tsolwana (Tarkastad & Hofmeyr towns). Lukhanji Municipality (Queenstown and Whittelsea towns) sits centrally  within the Chris Hani District.

The topography of the area ranges from Karoo plains in the west to the mountainous regions of the east. Rainfall patterns reflect the landscape declining from the east to the west. Overall temperatures fluctuate from cold and freezing in winter towards extreme heat in summer. As a result of this the District contains beautiful natural scenery and is the ideal playground for a wide variety of cultural and sporting activities.

Chris Hani
has a population of 799,134 (Stats SA, 2001), with recent estimates reaching in the region of 810, 000. The majority of the population (94%) lives in the former Transkei and Ciskei areas. The Coloured population makes up 4% and the proportion of whites is 2%. Xhosa is the majority language. The District covers an area of 36,963.8 square kilometres. Approximately 71% of the population reside in rural areas. The largest populations occur in the Intsika Yethu, Lukhanji, Engcobo and Emalahleni municipalities. The population is relatively youthful with just more than half of the population being female (53.76%).

The District Municipality provides an ideal investment opportunity due to its proximity to the ports of East London and Port Elizabeth and its location to the N6 and N 10 routes to Gauteng. In addition the large amounts of available land for agriculture and business and industry development as well as the large pool of available labour make it a desirable business centre.
