news

In response to social media posts making rounds that the municipality is liable for

damages to vehicles, residents are informed that:

• The Municipality can unfortunately not accept liability for damages you have

suffered, because of potholes, grass cutting incidents or fallen

trees/branches.

• The duty of care is upon us all and we all have a duty to mitigate against our

own losses, as well as the circumstances of these matters,

 

It is kindly suggested that such claims be referred to your own insurer.

It should be noted that the Municipality will defend any action instituted against it

regarding these claims in a court of law or any other relevant forum.

Please contact Midvaal’s Call Centre on 0861 643 8225 (0861MIDVAAL), should you

have any further queries in this regard.
