The Blantyre City Council (BCC) says property owners owe the Council about K2 billion in property rates default.

Spokesperson for the Council, Anthony Kasunda, says the development is choking their efforts to serve the city dwellers well.

The Council has since published in newspaper 180 property rate defaulters in an attempt to compel them to pay the rates.

“As a Council, we are failing to collect garbage in the city; we are failing to buy fire fighting vehicle and there is a lot that have been affected because we need money.

“However, we are trying to give service to people in the city but we are asking those property owners to pay within 21 days,” he said.

The Council says failure to adhere to the 21-day notice will result in the council taking actions that include sealing of the premises/properties or seizure of property to recover debt.
