Starting next week, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality will kick off a year-long project trying to verify water and electricity meters across the city.

This is to ensure that all the information on account-holders is correct and up to date.

Data collectors from EOH – a company that is collating the information on the metro’s behalf– will be visiting homes on weekdays between 7.30am and 6pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 1pm.

The municipality has called on residents to open their doors for the field workers to verify their meters.

They can be identified by: a grey T-shirt labelled NMBM and EOH; a formal ID card; and a laminated letter of designation from the municipality.

Residents can contact (041) 506-5555 to confirm the fieldworkers’ details and schedule.

    Yeah, no. The municipality can phone me, make an appointment and then send a representative. This is South Africa, criminals dress like the police, like hell am I exposing my family to the off chance that the people wearing this particular outfit are not out to rape and pillage. I have updated my details at the municipal offices – if that phone number operates anything like the offices, no one will be able to verify anything.
