Balamanzi, a company based in Kuils River, that supplies and installs water meters in Cape Town, has described the ongoing load shedding as frustrating. The company says the power outages are causing delays in the production and distribution of their
water meters. Balamanzi CEO, Johan Mahoney, says they currently employ 15 people. He says the power cuts are severely affecting the company: "We can't make contact with our clients, the guys have to use their cell phones which is a more expensive way of communication, we have guys out in the field, we have clients, we have to liaise with them and our clients obviously get frustrated with us and everything just started yesterday without notice and it all
caught us by surprise."
