The South African National Civic Organisation on Thursday called on authorities to target assets of businesses responsible for theft of electricity from Eskom and municipalities, which runs into billions of rands.

Sanco spokesperson Jabu Mahlangu said: “The clampdown on syndicates that are crippling our economy cannot leave out main beneficiaries of this category of organised crime ie mining houses and farmers”.

“Continuing to treat them with kid gloves will only exacerbate the problem. “You steal electricity, you forfeit your business assets as proceeds of crime. You steal electricity you lose your farm.”
