Eskom to commence power supply interruptions to Govan Mbeki Local Municipality for non-payment
  09 May 2018
 
On 06 April 2018, Eskom issued a notice suspending the scheduled interruption of power supply to Govan Mbeki Local Municipality subject to the municipality honouring the terms of the agreed Repayment Agreement and Electricity Supply Agreement.
 
The interruption suspension notice issued entitles Eskom to initiate the interruptions should the municipality default in terms of the Repayment Agreement and Electricity Supply Agreement.
 
Govan Mbeki Local Municipality failed to adhere to the terms of the agreement, as a result Eskom will commence with the scheduled power supply interruptions to this municipality on Monday, 21 May 2018.
 
The contemplated interruptions which will affect Bethal and Secunda Towns, as well as the eZakheni and eMbalenhle Townships, will result in scheduled power interruptions as follows:
 
WEEK1: (21-27 May 2018)
Monday to Friday Saturday and Sunday
06h00 – 08h00 08h30 – 11h00
17h00 – 19h30 15h00 – 17h30
Week 2: (28 May - 03 June 2018)
Monday to Friday Saturday and Sunday
06h00 – 09h00 08h30 – 12h00
17h00 – 20h30 15h00 – 19h00
WEEK 3: (04 June 2018 until breach is remedied)
Monday to Friday Saturday and Sunday
06h00 – 20h00 06h00 – 20h00
 
 
A notice to this effect will be issued to the media no later than 18 May 2018. The contemplated interruptions can only be averted once an acceptable agreement to settle the outstanding debt has been reached with the municipality.
