VAAL TRIANGLE - AfriForum Vanderbijlpark says customers of Emfuleni Local Municipality have still not received their municipal accounts. However, the organisation’s Andries Visagie said in a statement that this does not absolve residents of their legal obligation to pay. Visagie, therefore, urged residents to just pay the average amount that they have been invoiced over the last three months as an estimate, or else risk disconnections. He said this is not official ELM communication, but a reasonable legal approach to the current billing crisis. Visagie blamed the problem on Emfuleni’s inability to plan ahead properly to provide the residents with accurate and up to date rates & taxes accounts.
