Response on ESKOM Notice to Interrupt the Supply of Electricity to Emthanjeni Municipality PDF Print

In the recent few weeks, there has been a lot of speculation on social media on the abovementioned subject. On Friday 9 March 2018, there was a response by the Municipal Manager on this matter in the De Aar ECHO.

Today 16 March 2018, ESKOM published a notice(Volksblad) of their intention to interrupt the power supply to Emthanjeni Municipality and they are affording community members the opportunity to submit input as to why the supply should not be interrupted.

Our response to this notice, is that we are currently engaged in negotiations with ESKOM on the matter and we have not yet reached a deadlock. Our residents should therefore remain calm and leave the matter in the hands of the Municipality.

We do however URGE/PLEAD with our residents to pay for their services, to avert such situations. Those who pay their accounts every month in full must please continue to do so and those who do not pay, we will continue to implement the Credit Control policy of the municipality.

We will communicate further on the matter in due course.

Isak Visser[Mr]
