MEDIA STATEMENT: Issued 5th December 2018
GEORGE MUNICIPALITY STATEMENT
George Municipality would like to confirm that with regard to the circulation of a fraudulent letter stating that new operating licenses to taxis will be issued, a case has been registered with the South African Police Services and the document forms part of evidence in this matter.
George Municipality has provided a statement to SAPS confirming that the letter in circulation was not official and/or signed by any official of the municipality.
George Municipality would like to reiterate that NO NEW Operating Licences are being issued and the moratorium on NEW licenses stands.
Any person who thinks they have “purchased” a NEW Operating licence should report as such to SAPS as they have been defrauded.
The recent renewals were ONLY existing licences that had to be renewed.
For any further complaints regarding this issue, please contact the investigating Office Sgt Maton at 044 803 4526
