Gamagara Local Municipality averts interruption of bulk supply
Thursday, 22 March 2018: In a notice published on 14 March 2018, Eskom indicated its intention to interrupt bulk supply to Gamagara Local Municipality on 29 March 2018 due to the Municipality’s failure to honour its payment agreement for the settlement of R65 572 564.51 indebted to Eskom.  Parts of this amount have been outstanding and in escalation since May 2016. 
A new payment agreement has been entered into and as a result the interruption planned for 29 March 2018 has been suspended.  Kathu, Olifantshoek and Dingleton would have been affected by these scheduled interruptions. 
Gamagara Local Municipality’s honouring of the payment agreement will be closely monitored.  Defaulting on their payment agreement will result in the implementation of the scheduled interruptions with 14 days’ notice.
