PHILIPSBURG – Sick and tired of a week of unscheduled load shedding and damage to home and business appliances and no option to get a refund for sustained damages, a group of disgruntled consumers voiced their grievances to GEBE head office on Pondfill Road early this morning.

At one point a group blocked the traffic on Pondfill road for a period of time which resulted in traffic being backed up.

No word as yet if the protesters were able to speak to management. The story will be updated once details are confirmed.
