Illegal electricy connections problem continues

By Sasha Forbes

Eskom says despite public awareness campaigns, electricity thieves continue to reconnect illegal cables after they have been cut. The national energy provider says it spends millions of rands to remove illegal cables in areas like Du Noon, Nomzamo and Crossroads.

“From Eskom’s side we are more concerned about the safety aspect the connections have got, the wiring is very unsafe and it often poses a danger in particularly to children and or to animals who are exposed to the wires,” says Eskom’s Jolene Henn

“We appeal to the public to report any case of illegal reconnection, if they have any information they can call 0800 112722,” says Henn
