Salam. I support totally 100% the Brunei government of issuing the new prepaid electricity unit /meter/ board for the whole nation to apply in their house/ office /business/ etc. Why? Well to those who like to waste and NEVER think of reservation for the “future”… better think twice before you switch on any electrical appliance or gadget for today to day use.
Many in the country had been using this cheap utility for granted and some even left the “bills” climbing and NOT EVEN BOTHERED to pay at all!! What a shame. I thought we Bruneians are well educated, caring and being responsible in what we do, say or act. Simply because of some naughty individuals, the whole nation gets the treatment and ask to move from post-paid to pre-paid meters. I can’t agree more. Hope that this move will “educate” our people to conserve as well as responsibly use their electricity with care.
Now the amounting un-paid bills from the public as well as from other agencies including and surprisingly BSP, carried the alarms and force the government to take drastic action.
So people, wake up and be a mature and a responsible citizen. Our country can go bankrupt if this kind of bad behavior continues. That is what happen to countries like America, Europe nowadays…burden with bad debts….!!
