“I am pleased to announce that the City of Johannesburg is poised to deliver appointment letters to the remaining security guards employed at the time of the announcement in May 2017, to be insourced effectively on 1 July 2019,” he said.

In 2018, a reported 2 800 security guards were insourced at various departments. In the process, the City was able to increase the workers’ take-home salary by a minimum of 50 percent and offered them employee benefits and stable employment while containing the City’s escalating security costs.

Previously, companies were paid R12 000 for each guard provided while the guards received a meagre R4 000 per month.
