No I am not
It is as if we live in the dark ages. Water, electricity outages, exceptionally rude and useless municipal employees, no emergency numbers work, it takes weeks for service delivery problems to be dealt with, place is filthy. Even rubbish collectors do not care - one pays for a dustbin, leaves it out for collection and finds it has been broken - with no recourse for you as the person paying for rubbish collection. The municipality of Ekurhuleni is a massive joke - what service delivery?
Nothing!

Maybe it is not fair blaming the municipality for load shedding as it is really Eskom. Fact is I pay municipality bill so they fall in the same category. This last week just had me thinking about the way we do things and the things we say. Government is constantly talking about creating more jobs and Eskom is constantly asking for more money and then keep us at ransom by cutting power if the answer is NO! My suggestion would be this and I realize it sounds simple - I do believe it possible. With solar panel systems and inverters we are currently using in our homes for when the power is out we could do this permanently. Lets create companies that converts homes to use solar panel systems permanently with Eskom as backup - additional power not used by homes could be pushed back into the system for use by others. This way we create job opportunities as well as lighten the load on Eskom. This will reduce the illegal tapping of electricity in informal settlements as well which also will safe lives as we had a few incidents where individuals have lost their lives due to this practice.

Potholes are a huge issue in most areas, and even when they are repaired, the quality of the workmanship, leaves a lot to be desired.
Corruption and bribery is also a major problem. I sent an email to the Mayors Office, and even though they promised to investigate and get back to me, I am still waiting.
The friendliness of the people.
