Electricity Tariffs Must Fall!
Our Basic rights are being infringed upon by making it impossible to be able to afford electricity (which is a basic need) The value of your house now determines your tarrif... (R400 000 and more) If you own a home of R400 000 the City regards you as being rich and able to afford.. Even though you are unemployed or an elderly citizen. You are not informed of any changes and thus it is being enforced upon you.
People have to cut down on other essentials as electricity is a basic need. There are people stealing electricity & illegally connecting electricity BUT YOU THE WORKER MUST PAY... THE POOR IS GETTING POORER and will be forced to sell their homes as electricity has become a financial strain. Does the government want us in shacks in order to get things free or subsidised.. What about the people who have a R400 000 BOND for 20 years?
What about people who inherit properties but is unemployed? What about a single mother with 5 children owning a property of this value? In other words.. You wouldn't want to upgrade your house, because you will then be on the highest electricity tariff... Are we restricted in our own homes? Homes we suffer for..just to get it paid... This is unconstitutional...
It goes against the BILL OF RIGHTS!!! WE NEED TO ACT...THIS CITY NEEDS TO KNOW THAT WE ARE THE CITIZENS AND WE SHOULD BE PROTECTED & RESPECTED... WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO HUMAN DIGNITY... & EQUALITY!!!! THIS IS ANOTHER FORM OF APARTHEID THAT MUST BE ABOLISHED!!! LETS STAND UP FOR OUR RIGHTS!!!!
