“Our goal is to get more litigants to get relief. We plan on embarking on a door-to-door campaign this week and we want people to come forward,” ANC’s Western Cape elections head, Ebrahim Rasool, said.
In September, the party filed court papers to challenge increased water tariffs after it claimed it had received several complaints from residents who said they faced “ludicrous” water bills.
The party filed papers in the Western Cape High Court in a bid to launch a “class-action suit”. Papers were filed just days after the City announced the relaxing of water restrictions and a lowering of tariffs.
The class-action suit was filed on behalf of four residents, Patrick Festus, Arthur Theys, Januel Hector and Lameez Souma, and sought to have all water and sanitation tariffs increases set aside.
