The City of Tshwane has
initiated an immovable asset verification process with the purpose of preparing
an accurate register of all its immovable assets such as land, property and
roads, as well as electricity and water systems.
This is a complete verification of municipal assets that
will help to obtain clarity on what belongs to the City and what does not. This
process, which is conducted by Akhile Consortium on behalf of the City, is
already underway and will take several months to complete. It will cover all
seven regions of Tshwane.
Preparing the asset register entails the physical
verification and evaluation of each asset in terms of its existence, current state,
maintenance requirements and revenue regeneration. As part of job creation,
Akhile Consortium has given preference to unemployed residents of Tshwane to
perform the verification. Most of these were recruited from institutions of
A total of 120 fieldworkers were appointed for the
asset verification in all regions of Tshwane. They will wear branded
identification cards, caps and overalls. They will not conduct door-to-door
evaluation, therefore communities must be vigilant and not be defrauded by
It is important that
Tshwane residents are aware of this process so as to cooperate with the
fieldworkers in order to enable them to perform this important task for the
City. The assets belong to our communities, and we implore them to take
ownership of the assets by protecting them from vandalism and theft.
All residents are
urged to report any vandalism or destruction of municipal assets to the Tshwane
Metro Police Department on 012 358 7095/6.
