Not so fast, Vumatel!

This morning when I was putting out the rubbish bins I nearly tripped over the Vumatel manhole cover that has been partially open in the middle of a busy sidewalk for the past few weeks.
So as a good public citizen I reported the problem to our local Vumatel Twitter account, and they promised to have it fixed.
And, true to their word they sent someone to "fix" it, and the one on the opposite side of the road.
Now I'm wondering in what parallel universe this makes the manhole safer? Then the Pikitup people arrived to collect the rubbish bins, and one of the guys nearly impaled his foot on the spike. If he wasn't wearing boots he would be in the emergency room.
So I reported it again. And again they sent someone to "fix" the problem.
At this point I give up. We are back to square one. They obviously live in some kind of parallel universe.

Update Monday 17 October 2016: Since Vumatel took the whole day to do nothing. I fixed it myself, with some sticky take and a piece of aluminium that they left lying around. Clearly they don't care if anyone opens the unlocked manhole cover and sabotages their stuff.
