Received this in my mail this morning - it relates to Bulawayo but the same thing goes for Harare - how can we pay bills when we don't get any form of statement showing what we have paid and been creidited with.
Last month our phone bill was oaid with one US dollar - and we had 15 billion credit - this month we have had to pay US Dollars 80 - actually 90 as it was cents of the 80 and they did not have change!
How can one actually justify this increase in costs?
Subject: WE WANT OUR INVOICES !!!!!! Please read if you agree.
One big Beef of mine is - When did you last receive an “ACTUAL REAL LIVE BILL“ in your post box or at your Home address? I gave up sometime ago, as it proved next to impossible, to get an actual bill printed & I also had to resort to phoning or getting a piece of “SCRAP” paper with what the balance owing was. How can you check to see if your last payment was even credited to your account or query “ESTIMATES?”
I feel it is time to make a “STAND” and it should start with IMMEDIATE EFFECT. Do not pay your bills until you receive an Invoice or Statement from the following :
ZESA – They should also read the Meters. No more estimates due to non-availability of fuel.
TELONE & All the rest
CITY OF BULAWAYO. Ditto above & can they collect our GARBAGE PLEASE. Cholera is around the corner, as well as other associated diseases.
The principle being that we are going to be charged in HARD CURRENCY, which not all of us have access to anyway. The days of BEING THREATENED with cut-offs etc. should & must be over. Surely they can now afford all the THINGS that they said they had no finance for, such as computer printing ribbons, paper, POSTAGE STAMPS to mail our Bills, & numerous other excuses for the non-delivery of “SERVICES”. Some of you have Businesses & NEED the invoice for purposes of VAT rebates from ZIMRA anyway.
The Governor of the Reserve Bank, by allowing the above parastatals to charge us in Forex, forgot to explain that they should now LIVE UP TO THEIR MISSION STATEMENTS.
Therefore, we should ALL demand & indeed, should be entitled to a FIRST WORLD SERVICE, since we are being charged in FIRST WORLD CURRENCY.
If you agree to the above, please forward to as many people as are on your MAILING LISTS.
