Letter of the week : Increase in toll fees

Posted in News bulletin

The editor
The price of petrol is now again on the increase, and to add insult to injury, we have also been notified that the toll gates have also increased their fees. Travelling nowadays is being made difficult due to these increases. The fact that I have been struggling to visit my family from the area I work, how do they expect us to cope now that they have increased toll fees.
I am very disappointed at this move, even though I know that writing this letter will not make any difference, maybe there will be other people who can relate to what I am going through.

RUSTENBURG HERALD - RUSTENBURG - When power came back on after load shedding last night, parts of the city remained in darkness.
This was apparently due to an explosion at the Marais substation.
Residents of streets like Kruger, Joubert, Marais and Kerk, as well as Beyers Naude Drive were affected.
On Wednesday morning (13 February) some households in the area were still experiencing electricity outages.
At the time of going to press, more information was not yet available.
