City of Joburg evicts NGOs from its buildings

The future of 32 NGOs is uncertain after the City of Joburg kicked them out of municipality-owned buildings in the city centre.

The city acquired Nedbank Building in Commissioner Street and Bramfischer Towers in 2009 through the Johannesburg Property Company and sub-let it to the NGOs.

The city's spokesperson, Nkosinathi Nkabinde, says that the city is committed to pay 80 percent of the rental per year, which is R5.2 million.

The NGOs owe the city R328 000.
