But the 62-year-old man says he refuses to pay the “crazy” account he received in August and wants the City to sort it out as there is no way he could have racked up such a moerse bill.
Jonathan Isaacs, 62, from Sunbird Park says when he received the exorbitant bill of R1 824 868, he thought he was going to have a heart attack.
“I went to the rent office to get my bill as I saw it was late. I got to the counter and the guy at the counter told me the amount,” he says.
“I told him he must be joking and he said no. I immediately started stressing. I am a pensioner. How could I pay that?”
