Municipality blames itself for Jordaan’s unpaid electricity bill
The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has claimed responsibility for electricity problems at its mayor’s home.
The Weekend Post this weekend reported that Jordaan’s Summerstrand house has not been billed since 2007.
The City Council has however said the Jordaan family is not at fault.
The municipality’s Roland Williams said as soon as the Jordaans realised their meter had burned out they contacted the municipality.
He said the municipality is at fault for not addressing the issue immediately.
“One of our technicians had obviously messed up and the problem was not addressed, and it continued to be that way.”
Williams added that Jordaans had moved back to Nelson Mandela Bay, they found the meter had not been fixed and reported it once again.
The electricity meter has recently been fixed.
