Public cautioned against making random payments into municipal accounts

12 February 2021 | Local News


Walvis Bay


The municipality of Walvis Bay issued a statement saying that some people have been misled into believing that making random payments into a municipal bank account will secure them erven at some point in future.

Allegedly these payments serve as down payments on unidentified erven.

The municipal communications officer Anita Kaihiva said that any public sale of erven will be formally announced via the municipality’s approved communication channels. “In the absence of this, any other announcement purportedly on behalf of the Municipality should be treated with suspicion.

“Residents are advised to not be deceived in this manner. They should refrain from making unknown payments into any of the municipality’s bank accounts without a reference number.”

She also reminded members of the public to provide the correct reference numbers, preferably the eight-digit account numbers, when legitimate payments are made.

Members of the public who have been targeted improperly should contact Johanna Shidute on (064) 201 3293.
