Fraud, crime and theft is an increasing problem in South Africa. Too often, it is undetected and goes unreported, resulting in financial losses to organisations, eventually to the detriment of all stakeholders.

Saldanha Bay Municipality is no different - even as a local municipality. We are committed to conducting healthy business practices with honesty and integrity, which will not only ensure a stable environment for everyone but also ensure the continued future success of the municipality.

For this reason, we have subscribed to a service that will enable all our stakeholders to report anonymously on dishonest colleagues. The service, Tip-offs Anonymous®, is totally independent of Saldanha Bay Municipality. No one will therefore ever know who reported the fraud or dishonest and inappropriate behaviour.

How does it work?
• Anyone can contact Tip-offs Anonymous® using a dedicated FreeCall 0800 telephone number and e-mail as well as the generic FreePost and FreeFax facilities.
• Trained operators, using sophisticated contact centre equipment, will respond to calls in all the 11 official languages during business hours.
• English, Afrikaans, Zulu, Sotho or Xhosa are available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
• Operators will interview callers, probing for specific facts so as to record as much information and understand things as clearly as possible.
• The information is then analysed and forwarded to designated persons of the organisation who will decide on corrective action to be taken.
• Although you may choose to tell Tip-offs Anonymous® who you are, the Tip-off report will never reveal your identity or even your gender (unless you choose your identity to be made known to the company!).

What are the contact details?
FreeCall phone: 0800 00 33 10 (exclusive to Saldanha Bay Municipality)
FreeCall fax: 0800 00 77 88 (for the sending of relevant documentation to support your tip-off)
SMS: 32840
Unique e-mail: sbm@tip-offs.com (If Your Company has a server, do not send e-mail from work as this can be traced.)

Please note that your e-mails will also remain anonymous since they will be relayed through a server which “strips-out” your name as sender as well as all other source information.

A 20% water restriction limit will be imposed to all water consumers. The following tariff increases (as per table below) will be applied on accounts and will be processed as from 1 November 2016.
