FOR 11 months a street light in Seventh Avenue, Summerstrand has not worked. This light is right opposite the entrance to a retirement village.
Despite several calls to our ward councillor and reporting the matter to the municipal "hot line", who in turn gave me a reference number and assurance that the matter would be dealt with, nothing happened!
On Monday September 10, I reported the matter to Marion Harning, a PR councillor for the ANC, who immediately contacted Peter Nielson, the acting director of electricity and energy. On Saturday night September 15, the light shone!
Thank you, Marion and thank you, Peter. Were it not for you two we could have commemorated a year of darkness.
