Harare City council has reengaged Well Cash Debt Collectors which it had cut ties with.
In an advertisement the local authority also encouraged ratepayers to comply with payment plans entered with the debt collector. They also urged those who cannot comply with the old agreements to go and negotiate for new ones. Said Harare City Council:
The City of Harare would like to advise residents and ratepayers that it has re-engaged Wellcash Debt Collectors with effect from August 10, 2017. Ratepayers are encouraged to comply with the payment plans they entered with Wellcash. Those who may not be able to fulfil their obligations are requested to visit Wellcash offices at their head office or respective districts to renew or renegotiate payments plans. Ratepayers are encouraged to make payment plans with the City of Harare to avoid debt collectors. A payment plan that is adhered to does not attract interest charges.
