Should the South African Post Office (Sapo) not pay its R269-million Telkom bill, they will have their internet services shutoff.

The Sunday Times earlier reported that Telkom issued a letter to Sapo demanding that it settle its debt after it breached its payment agreement. The post office needs Telkom’s services to issue social grants and renew car registrations.

However, Sapo clapped back saying it had paid its bills for the past year in full, but there was historical debt to consider.

Intervening on Sapo’s behalf, the Department of Communications and Digital Technologies has been raising funds to settle its historical debt and are in consultation with Treasury.
