Residents Warned to Exercise Caution, As Scammers Advertise Fake Job Openings

The public is hereby advised to exercise extreme caution, on a resurgence of a job scam being associated with the Rustenburg Local Municipality. In this recent scam there is an individual – Mr. Mohapi using the following contact numbers 064 8791 504/014 547 0601 who is posing as a recruiter on behalf of the RLM with the following vacancies:

  • General Workers
  • Assistant Manager
  • Call Centre Agents
  • Pay Roll Administrators
  • Cleaners
  • Drivers with Code 10 & 14 with PrDP
  • Security Guards
  • Administration staff

The above job vacancies, have not been advertised by the RLM and therefore these vacancies are not currently available. Further to that it has also emerged that the name of the Rustenburg Local Municipality is being used, to lure unsuspecting members of the public of job opportunities at the municipality.  The public will be notified accordingly by way of placing advertisements on both national and local newspapers, the municipal website and all its social media platforms.

This remains the RLM’s standard of personnel recruitment, which has not changed. The Municipality does not make use of any employment agencies and or Human Resources agents for purposes of recruitment. It is not the RLM’s policy nor a requirement for any prospective employees to make deposits prior to a confirmation of employment at the Municipality. The Human Resources department will invite interviewees by way of telephone, and or e-mail, on a municipal domain bearing the coat of arms.

We appeal to the community of Rustenburg to be extra vigilant including calling the Human Resources department on 014 590 3989, to verify the authenticity of the invitations or by visiting the Municipality’s HR department, 5th floor at Missionary Mpheni House.



Rehabilitation of Roads, Key Focus Area for Rustenburg Council

The growth of Rustenburg, which has surpassed expectations has had unintended consequences for the City’s road network. Large volumes of traffic including heavy vehicles have significantly reduced the life span of the City’s roads which are critical in advancing the economic objectives of Rustenburg through the transportation of goods and workers in the various sectors.
One the roads which has been successfully completed is the Tlhabane intersection of Lebone and Dr. Moroka roads which has deteriorated mainly due to the high traffic volume coupled with heavy vehicles which transported good to and from the industrial area. Some of the work which has been done to date include during the month of December include the re-gravelling of internal roads in Lekgalong village, road marking in Geelhout, pothole patching in Meriting Extension 2.
Some of the areas under the jurisdiction of the RLM which have been serviced in respect of road network maintenance include Boitekong Extension 2, Tlhabane West, Zinniaville, Waterfall East, Rustenburg CBD, Tlhabane, Protea
Park and Safari Tuine. The Project Management Unit (PMU) has enabled the Roads and Storm Water Unit to register considerable progress in the rehabilitation of internal roads in some of our areas such as Tlhabane, where large road portions which had deteriorated have been rehabilitated.
The RLM expresses its gratitude to the residents who had to endure unfavourable road conditions, as well as the inconvenience experienced during travelling around the City, during the time the rehabilitation projects were unfolding.
