Residents are angry that their water bills are not based on meter readings.

Pietermaritzburg residents are accusing Msunduzi’s meter readers of not doing their job.

They told The Witness that they suspected that the municipality was sending them estimated water bills and that they were tired of it.

Among them is Nomusa Xulu from Northdale, who said she has an issue with a leaking water pipe since February last year. She said as a result the meter readers could not check her meter which is under water.
