City Of Tshwane Municipality — electricity account
I am a widow and a pensioner with a very small income.in order to earn some extra money, I have been letting my house (bianca singel 64, montanapark, lot 83 with mun. Acc # [protected]) to tenants for 15 years now. The current tenant, mr. John vos (tel [protected]) have been renting the house since july 2016. The tenant has been using prepaid electricity. The municipality of tshwane alleges (without any proof whatsoever) that the tenant has been using the house as a business and that the amount of electricity used by him is too small and that he therefor had tempered with the meter. He denied all the allegations. There is also no proof of tempering. Mr. Vos went to the police where he made a statement in this regard. According to the municipality I am - as the home owner - responsible for an amount of r175 000 which includes fines! The tenant, mr. Vos, apart from making a statement at the police, went to see ms. Betty chuene with all his evidence (her phone number [protected]) on 4 january 2017. A dispute was furthermore lodged with kabelo f molukanele (counter # 8 at meter records). Nobody responded until this very day. I want to sell my home, but I am unable to do anything with the fictitious "debt" against my property. Please assist.
