    Ask the Govt. to shove the reduction where ever they want. Shame on them after the big mouth making a bold statement.

    So the hardworking few who create jobs and sustain the economy have to pay the full amount??

    Ad Thursday, 02 May 2013 01:13 PM

    What Relief? Anyway we ended up paying a higher amount.

    Don Thursday, 02 May 2013 01:40 PM

    This was planned the whole time. What should happen is the people who don't care about wasting electricity must be made to pay more per unit.

    A Govt That increases taxes by 150% and then like a recent medical miracle reduces the fuel surcharge by 25% , which they are responsible for introducing in the first place to cover losses made by CEB for the sake of votes - You are becoming too predictable

    They have no solution to this national problem, only trying to patch up the issue to deceive the public whilst wasting public money for projects that are not of national priority.

    reduction is nothing but a well planned political gimmick ahead of next presidential election.
