NO electricity for five months at the AB Jackson Greenfields Stadium has ultimately led to a burglary there on Monday night. Two computers, one containing programs worth R50 000, were stolen from the stadium’s office. With no electricity following the breakdown of a transformer that supplies power to the stadium, the alarm at the office has not been operational. Gary Carson, president of the KZN Inland Hockey Association, said despite a new transformer being installed by the municipality over a week ago, there was no meter to connect it yet. Carson is fed up with the municipality’s negligent attitude towards the situation. “We have no working alarm due to no electricity. A sealed window was forced open and two computers and computer accessories stolen. I am sure that the insurance company will not pay our claim due to us having no electricity. This is all because of the municipality’s gross inefficiency,” said Carson. Other members of the association asked how the municipality could respond swiftly and repair the transformer that supplies electricity to Parklane Spar last week, yet their electricity woes continue. Shakile Kader, owner of Duzi Electrical, which has been tasked with the repairs, said while the transformer was installed on October 24, he was later informed that a wrong-sized amp breaker had been installed. “The quote I submitted for the contract was for a 200 amp breaker, I was never told that a 400 amp breaker had to be installed, until I submitted the paperwork,” said Kader. It is unclear as to how the mistake arose, but Kader said the new breaker had been ordered and was expected to arrive this week. Msunduzi municipality spokesperson Brian Zuma said they were waiting for the contractor to complete the installation.
