King of de Jungle

So I suspect this has to do with the *MASSIVE* amounts of damage that these fibre installers do to the water pipes and electrical cables in the residential suburbs. We had constant outages and damage in the order of two or three incidents a week, when they were laying in our area (Ekurhuleni). And I suspect the costs of some of those repairs were pushed back onto the taxpayers creating an additional burden on already overstretched budgets. So this deposit goes some way to holding the fibre installers responsible to do the job more carefully and with less damage to infrastructure.
