Municipality Fraud


I wish to bring to your attention that major discrepancies exist on this account and I reported this already on 13 August 2014 with Sabatha Shongwe, Chief Financial Officer at SEME Local Municipality, Volksrust, Mpumalanga. Two elederly people who qualify for indigent grants live in this house but are paying excessively for electricity.    The following I wish to point out:   Proof can be submitted that no meter readings are taking place for water and electricityFor more than 2 years the account remained consistent at around R500 – R650 per month for water and electricitySince the new accounts were issued in August 2014, this account increased by 200% The enquiry with the accounts department brought no resolution to the enquiry and no corrections were madeIt is our intention to bring Carte Blance in on the matter since we suspect fraud or theft based on the following information:5.1 the account for January 2014 states that meter readings are 82805, but the actual meter reading personally taken on 7 March is 81972, a full 833 consumption units over charged.  Furthermore, this is the proof that not once has the meter been read in many years except when the enquiry was lodged in August 2014.  Please see account and readings attached. Mr and Mrs van der Westhuizen were away on leave visiting family from 12 December 2013 until 17 February 2014, nearly 2 months. How can the usage remain unchanged of water and electricity?Do they make other people pay for some citizens who are benefited by this process?
