    Disgrace to Electrical Industry

    For all the people with blindfolds, here are the reports confirming that JP Bornman is operating illegally even though he is registered at ECB.

    The problem now is to rid the industry of him and his type.

    As yet JP Bornman has not been charged with anything.

    He is still signing COCs' which are worthless

    Where are the DOL teeth? They want to control the industry, now what are they doing about it?

    The old system with a local onbudsman worked fast and furious.

    Is DOL waiting for more electrocutions before pulling the plug on Volta Electrical?

    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    That's what I do not understand Murdoch. What is the function of the AIA?

    Why was the AIA and the DOL appointed at the cost of an effective Onbudsman, who got results quickly at an inspection fee cost.

    DOL are not interested in even looking at the site before they receive the AIA report(confirmation of what an accredited electrician has already confirmed).

    Now that they have the AIA report DOL are still doing nothing.

    The property buyer must now pay for another inspection and have the repairs done at his own cost. He must then take the contractor to court for the costs.
    IF HE LIVES THAT LONG!!!

    Why was the EFFECTIVE Onbudsman dumped for nothing?

    Just more proof that SA is well on it's way to becoming another Zimbabwe.

    The "affordable" recourse for the public has been taken away and an "unaffordable" dysfunctional alternative put in it's place.

    TYPICAL

    you flogging a dead horse...this industry will not be improving anytime soon...the only thing that improves in this country is the tax collection methods...and ideas to screw us for more money...everything else is sliding down a steep hill.

    i am gona say this again...the customer will pay for everything from the investigation to the actual repair and then have to claim the money back in court...have fun...the only people who will benefit will be the lawyers who make a mint out of you in their fees...i am yet to hear of a person actually getting this right.

    WHEN YOU BUY A HOUSE HAVE YOUR OWN ELECTRICIAN CHECK THE HOUSE...AND IF YOU PAY PEANUTS EXPECT MONKEYS TO ARRIVE...LITERALLY.

    Some good news (hopefully not a bone). I managed to get the contact details of the Deputy Director for Electrical Engineering and he appears to have given the ball some momentum. The report is now ready to go to the Senior Public Prosecutor. In Afrikaans there is a saying "aanhouer wen" that sounds more poetic than saying it in english to me.:-)
