CoJ overcharges Reef Hotel R10 million on water usage, illegally disconnects hotel’s electricity

On 24 January 2023 the Reef Hotel’s electricity was disconnected by officials from the City of Johannesburg.

The Reef Hotel approached Hahn & Hahn Attorneys for assistance and an urgent application was launched in the High Court for an order to compel the City of Johannesburg to reconnect the Reef Hotel’s electricity.

The application was brought on the basis that CoJ had illegally disconnected the Reef Hotel’s electricity supply. One of the grounds was that the CoJ had overcharged the Hotel an estimate of R10 million for its water usage. This led to the CoJ issuing a reconnection instruction to the electricity supply that it so vehemently disconnected only a couple of days earlier.
