The Fever carried a story on 26 January, Flawed bills infuriate residents, where people complained of being charged thousands extra for their water consumption. Some said they would not pay for a service they did not use,

“The municipality is currently experiencing challenges with the billing system which are being addressed,” said spokesperson France Zama.
