Residents in the city of Cape Town will pay R1,23 more for every 1,000 litres of municipal water you use.
Electricity tariffs have also gone up by 8,88% and the tariff for refuse removal goes up by 5%.
Local Government MEC Anton Bredell said they were mindful of the tough economic times and, as such, most municipalities in the province kept their increases between 5% and 10%.
He said the growth of the province’s population proved to be a challenge for municipalities.
“We need to adhere to the requests to provide services. It puts a lot of strain on our municipalities.”
