EDITOR – I write to you with disgust.
READ ALSO: Residents demand answers on repairs
I live within the Edenvale Ridge Residents Association (ERRA) compound.
At the beginning of February, one of the residents contacted the municipal service in charge of repairing the streetlights.
The streetlight near her home, at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Twelfth Street, was not working, and all of the electrical components of the light were exposed.
The municipality came on February 4 and wrapped duct tape around the lamp post and exposed components.
Most electrical components are still exposed. I’m not sure what use they think the masking tape will do!
I think it’s time for this kind of thing to be exposed. No wonder the electricity supply in South Africa is as it is.
They obviously employ lazy, incompetent jerks in these departments.
EDITORIAL COMMENT – A request for comments has been sent to the Town of Ekurhuleni.
The CoE replied that “it was still a work in progress. The problem was solved and the post cover was replaced.
