Council in move to write off R16.8m in bad debt

NELSON Mandela Bay councillors will decide tomorrow whether to write off R16.8-million in bad debt, some going as far back as 2005.

The budget and treasury portfolio committee is expected to make a decision at its meeting tomorrow before taking it to the full council for approval.
