PREVIEW: Fred van Dyk vows to continue fighting against high rates

Fred van Dyk gives rates increases a thumbs-down.

Fred van Dyk will resume the batttle against high rates bills in 2018.

He revealed his plans in an exclusive interview this week.

In this, van Dyk said repeated attempts to meet with Mayor, Makhosini Nkosi again had yielded no results.

However, he vowed to not let the matter rest.

“I will give him time to sort the matter out, and I hope to meet with him early in the new year.”

Van Dyk made headlines this year with his empassioned fight against increases in July and August.

This culminated in a protest march on Scott Street on August 25.

Since then, van Dyk has worked determinedly to find answers to his many questions.

The next edition is on shelves from Thursday morning onward.
