GCC may fail to pay schoolsďż˝ water, electricity bills


Primary schools under the Gaborone City Council (GCC) may go without water and electricity if funds are not found to settle the bills soon. On Monday, Gaborone mayor Kagiso Thutlwe said funds allocated to GCC may be depleted before the end of the financial year.

“However, council has observed that some activities which have been budgeted for are not spending as quickly as expected, while others have recorded higher expenditures, and there is an indication that may be depleted before the end of the financial year,” Thutlwe said. “One such expenditure vote is that which has been allocated for water and electricity bills.” Thutlwe said there was need to accelerate expenditure on maintenance of council facilities so as to deal with problems such as water leakages in schools while at the same time maintaining the highest level of functionality on their facilities.

The capital city mayor said they would embark on regular budget reviews in accordance with the budget manual for prudent resource allocation and utilisation.
