As you must have noticed, from one of my emails of yesterday regarding a charcoal dealer in our midst, our Council and it's environment dept., in particular, is not functioning. This means that when they are collecting garbage fees from us, via the water bill, it's only for the sake of collecting money (of which they are overly fond), but, not giving a service in return. The charcoal seller, in the same way is breaking many environmental and Municipal by-laws, but, getting him to stop his business has proved entirely fruitless.
In the same way, there are many neighbourhood wells and boreholes, but, they are allowed to exist, due to the Water Board's and the Water Company's gross and total negligence in providing this much needed fluid. Therefore, they allow, even at the expense of making a mess of our environment, locally and globally, such things to exist and nearly all new buildings that are built these days, have at least one borehole or well to cater for the occupants.
Yet, these insolent service providers continue sending us their contentious and phantom water bills, all in the name of some of us having meters, still, and to add insult to injury, they have now (since nearly a year), added sewage charges! On what grounds?
How dare these people even dream up such charges? When they can't even provide water to the residents on a consistent basis, how can they, then, start charging us for sewage, whose infrastructure is in a shambles and when they release raw sewage into the sea? What nonsense is this?
If, the powers that be, have really 'privatized' the water sector, then why are the same old 're-cycled' employees still existing? It sounds exactly like our government, which has the same old re-cycled people, yet, again, standing for office in the up-coming elections!
We can rightly be called a 'banana republic' when we don't get water and our power supply, too, is shaky in the extreme. The combined efforts of both are effectively taking us back to prehistoric times, I think!!!
