They say never write when you’re angry. Understandable. It is extremely difficult for me to say anything cohesive about how MERALCO is continuing with its grand swindling of its consumers by forcing them to pay for electricity they didn’t actually use.
And where are your usual noisy politicos and activists that grumble at every move the government makes? Oh, they’re so mum in all these since they are close friends and associates of the oligarchs that (mis)manage the country’s electricity services. They can’t even carry the cudgels for the common tao when it matters the most. (They’re only good at toppling presidents that don’t serve the interests of the greedy elitists.)
They probably even have special arrangements with the power provider, who knows, maybe even free electricity. Anything is possible in this ultra-crooked rich-controlled system we have here.
The nerve of these MERALCO people to even say that we “wait” for the “corrected” bill to be issued soon. If they really wanted, they could have given us all the real numbers and actual consumption at the get-go. Later on, they will have the temerity to unceremoniously cut off services to households who decide to sit out and wait for the factual readings before settling their dues.
Damn you, power oligarchs and your coddlers!
