A FAULTY transformer at the sub-station on Chief Albert Luthuli Street was fixed just in time to avoid a R3 million disaster yesterday. “When we first called, the lady [who answered the phone] asked us where Chief Albert Luthuli Street was! We waited for a while, but nothing happened. Eventually I called Bill Lambert, and he alerted the mayor, who said he would send someone around. It is alarming that the only way to get a response is to call the mayor,” said Mackenzie.
