THANKS Zinwa you have just killed any hope of my family surviving.
Your increases of 500% on the fixed charges and over 1 000% on the water rates has knocked my monthly bill from $328 000 to $2,5 million for a mere 23 units.
So my meagre vegetable garden, which was necessary because I cannot find or afford shop food, now has to go.
How can the price control commission allow such a blatantly outrageous increase after controlling everything else? Now we know why the fat cats from government and Zinwa were smugly grandstanding on ZTV news — it was all a big PR exercise ahead of when the inevitable consumer outcry hits. Bulawayo residents are right in saying no to Zinwa taking over — Harare should have done the same.
Drowning but dry,
