The Ekurhuleni municipality has admitted that electricity problems are causing frustrations in its Tembisa Township on Gauteng’s East Rand.

This follows a violent protest in which residents clashed with police yesterday morning.

Mayoral committee member Aubrey Nxumalo says over R130-million will be spent to overhaul the electricity metering system in the area.

The project is expected to get underway within the next few weeks.
