RE: FEEDBACK-ZESA, TELONE AND CITY COUNCIL CHARGES
I spoke to the Matabeleland Regional Manager Mr. T. Ncube this morning.
The March tariffs have been revised downwards as follows:
30 cents to 21 cents per unit (3 mins)
Rentals-Corporates-US15 to US 5
Residentials - US5 to US5 (No change)
A decision is yet to be made on the January and February bills. We will be advised soon.
I spoke to the Finance Director Mr. M. Nyoni this morning. The revised rates will be announced this week through the press. He advised the ratepayers to wait for the revised rates before they pay.
I spoke to the Commercial Manager Mr.M. Sibindi on Friday, last week. As directed by the Minister, they are waiting for the new charges, which were supposed to be finalized by the 15th of March 2009. Individuals are still urged to pay US10 and companies a third of their bills.
Members will be advised on any new development.
