Councils seek debt write off

Town clerks across the country are engaging parastatals such as Zesa Holdings to take a cue from the government and write off debts incurred the same way ratepayers' arrears were written off on the eve of the 2013 general elections.

This was disclosed recently by Bulawayo town clerk, Christopher Dube, who said the town clerks' forum was working on the matter.

Councils argue they were forced to carry a debt for services provided but not paid for after the government ordered a total-write off of all outstanding debts, and town clerks feel parastatals must also have the same burden.

This comes amid reports that several local authorities owed huge sums of money to service providers such as Zesa, Zimbabwe National Water Authority and TelOne.
