The South African Municipal
Workers Union has congratulated the South African local government association
and Eskom for having reached an agreement on electricity supply to Municipalities
in a statement.
When Eskom announced a few
months ago that it would not be supplying electricity to municipalities which
are in arrears with payment, SAMWU objected to this noting that the worst
affected would be the poor.
SAMWU Spokesperson Papikie
Mohale expressed that they trust that this agreement would ensure with
uninterrupted electricity supply to all municipalities so not to impede on
local economies’ growth and most importantly ordinary South Africans, In
particular the poor.
“We further trust that Eskom
will not once again threaten the country with blackouts as a result of a municipality’s
failure to pay money owed to it.” Mohale added
