The FF Plus in the Tshwane Metro Council stepped in over the weekend and asked private businesses to assist residents during the power crisis currently experienced by the Metro.
Various areas in the Metro have been affected by power outages since last Wednesday due to municipal officials’ ongoing illegal strike and the intimidation of fellow workers.
Burger Box in Baar Street, Centurion, said that residents could come and recharge their cell phones and laptops at its premises.
The FF Plus accompanied Mrs Joyce Maritz to Burger Box to recharge the batteries of her oxygen machine, on which she is fully dependent.
Virgin Active in Mall@Reds, Centurion, invited residents to come and make use of their shower facilities for free.
The party wants to thank all the businesses that are offering their services to residents during this challenging time.
The FF Plus is strongly opposed to the illegal strike that is holding residents hostage, and could even cost innocent people their lives.
