Public Notice


Political parties that contested the recent elections have until the end of business tomorrow to remove their posters or be fined.

In terms of the By-laws, no posters shall be displayed for longer than the period extending from the beginning of the date of proclamation in the Government Gazette of an upcoming referendum or election to the end of the fourteenth day after the date of such an election.

“Therefore, political parties are urged to remove their posters and any other election related material/ illustrations by tomorrow (12 June 2024) throughout the city. Any material not removed by tomorrow, will be removed by the City across all wards and the applicable political party will be charged a tariff/removal fee of R57.69 per poster, as prescribed by Schedule 19 of the City’s promulgated tariffs for the 2023/24 Financial Year,” explains city spokesman Zweli Dlamini.

“The City shall not be liable for any loss, damage, storage, cost, claims, demands and/or any other liability from an individual or political party who had contested the elections, with regards to election related material removed by the City.”

In April, the City reminded political parties and the public of the guidelines and encouraged everyone to stick to the rules.
