Die dae in eMalahleni los deesdae ’n droë en donker atmosfeer in elke huishouding.
Eskom is taking its power interruptions a step further.
Residents all over the municipality is smiling tonight as the lights stayed on.
On weekends residents of eMalahleni are only going to have three hours of electricity during the day.
This will take place on Tuesday, February 21 on the Reyno Ridge 6 substation which is situated in the North Eastern suburbs of eMalahleni.
Die wenslys volg nadat die tak verskeie gemeenskapsprobleme en -prioriteite geïdentifiseer het wat tot op hede nog nie deur die munisipaliteit in sy geïntegreerde ontwikkelingsplan (GOP) aangespreek is nie.
Until Emalahleni Local Municipality can come to a new arrangement with Eskom, residents will be without electricity twice a day.
“Die mense wat teenaan die riool bly, wil al hul huise verkoop,”
A municipal meeting was interrupted yesterday when the Hawks arrested a mayoral committee member.
Eskom rejected the local municipality’s proposals and flicked the switch this week.
Negotiations are ongoing but clearly Eskom is not willing to finding the middle ground on their threat to cut off power.
