Release: Immediate

On Wednesday, 07 June 2017, Executive Mayor of Johannesburg, Cllr Herman Mashaba, and the MMC for Health and Social Development, Cllr Mpho Phalatse, will announce plans on the Expanded Social Package.

The Expanded Social Package (ESP) is a register for indigent Citizen in the city, where individuals register of the City’s database in all revenue offices across the City, and is renewable every six (6) months to access benefits such as rebates on water, electricity, and refusal removal and property rates. The ESP is the City’s way of ensuring that the poorest and most vulnerable in our City have access to free basic services.

One of the priorities of the city is to be a Pro-Poor government. At the press conference, the Executive Mayor of Johannesburg, Cllr Herman Mashaba, will provide details on how the register will be used to expand the poor access to the vast array of support services the City offers.

Details of the conference are as follows:
