Attacq further states that it is in possession of all paperwork and invoicing in relation to its water connections and consumption and welcomes the opportunity to share the documentation with the relevant authorities.

Melt Hamman, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Attacq says, “We are aware of the allegations in relation to water theft in the Waterfall area and understand from news reported on the 30th May 2018 that “two property developers have been arrested”.  We would like to place on record that none of our staff have been arrested.  We are also aware of reference made to an amount of R8.2 million which was collected with regards to water meters and would like to confirm that Attacq is not a party to this payment.”

Jackie van Niekerk, Chief Operating Officer of Attacq says, “As Attacq, we are committed to the long-term sustainable development of Waterfall City. We do not condone the illegal use and connections of water and are concerned to learn of inferences relating to properties in our portfolio. We have the relevant documentation at hand and have approached CoJ to request clarity on this matter. We will be in a position to provide further comment once we have met with CoJ and due process has been followed.”
