North­ern areas al­ways ig­nored by politi­cians

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - This Week You’re Saying... -

I’m one of those loyal “fools” who humbly pays their bills with­out wait­ing for an ac­count, but my ser­vices were re­cently blocked and I dis­cov­ered I was in ar­rears.

As per the norm, no­body at trea­sury can give you an ac­cept­able ex­pla­na­tion, and with an “ag­gres­sive” at­ti­tude tell you to pay the penalty and in­ter­est.

I now find it very strange that [DA coun­cil­lor] Retief Oden­daal wants to fight our case to have th­ese un­fair and un­just charges scrapped, and this when the DA, for whom my fam­ily and I voted, has done noth­ing for the north­ern areas. But guess what? The elec­tions are loom­ing.

As for my fam­ily and I, we will never ever waste our time to vote again, as we have learnt that there is ab­so­lutely no po­lit­i­cal party that has the in­ter­est of the peo­ple of the north­ern areas at heart.

All politi­cians are in this game for their own selfish in­ter­est. Lind­say Lip­pert, via e-mail
