The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality on Sunday said that its  0800 20 50 50 24-hour toll-free number to report water leaks and other municipal related complaints was currently not accessible due to a fire on the 8th Floor on the Mfanasekhaya Gqobose building (formerly known as Eric Tindale).
"Residents are advised to e-mail the centre at [email protected] in the interim while our technical team work on the restoration of the telephone lines," said Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality by Media Management Officer Kupido Baron.
"Our Fire & Emergency Services received notification of the fire at 01:18 this morning and are still at the scene to ensure that the fire remains under control. An investigation by the Fire Department in consultation with the South African Police Services is underway to determine the cause of the fire."
