  • It is a sad day when @cityofct @eskom_holdings do NOT support small business that are struggling to keep staff employed. 
Our business has been shut due to lockdown & Covid19. All electricity switched off to conserve and use the basic minimum to survive. 
We know our tariff is a small business one which holds a daily service fee but this is not waived during lockdown even tho we cannot trade and not using the service like would normally. No negotiations allowed, it just is....says @cityofct 
Now in order to continue and get more units of electricity -  I am FORCED TO PAY
R3600 before I can go forward.

The daily service fee is not waived during lockdown. How is this allowed, how is this legal, how is this supportive? It felt criminal!

So instead you force us to go bankrupt,  make staff redundant and shut our doors!! Where is the support guys?? So you would rather we go out of business. Our space won't be rented out, not for any time soon, as no one is renting small restaurant space, so end of the day the city will loose out!

This just doesn't make any sense!! Ranting!!! @alan.winde @capetalkza @news24 @iolnews @bbcnews @kfmza @cyril_ramaphosa_official @cyrilramaphosafoundation
