MSUNDUZI’S massive electricity tariff hike was raised in the provincial Legislature yesterday. The DA tabled a motion expressing concern over the extraordinary increase. It criticised the ANC as the ruling party for failing to vote against the hike, saying it was set to create a huge burden to the city’s poorest residents.

He added that the increase was also likely to impede the recovery of the municipality as a whole with its impact on small businesses and residents.
