Tired of endless outages

2016-09-21 06:00

I AM sick and tired of the electricity failures of recent times in Hilton. Today, 14 September, we have been without water Cowan Road for the past 22 hours.

No one in the municipality cares. I have spoken to the plumber who is working on the water problem and he doesn’t care about our problems.

I am asking the residents of Hilton and Cowan Road to stop paying rates, water and lights until the municipally wakes up. Calling the call centre is a waste of time – they don’t care and they don’t actually want to help you. I am asking for the residents to respond - we have had enough in Hilton.
