Interruptions to Mafube Local Municipality to be implemented tomorrow
 
Monday, 15 October 2018: As published in a notice on 02 October 2018, Eskom will interrupt the bulk supply of electricity to Mafube Local Municipality from tomorrow, 16 October 2018, until a satisfactory payment agreement has been reached. Frankfort, Cornelia, Tweeling and Villiers will be affected.
 
The scheduled interruptions are implemented due to Mafube Local Municipality’s failure to pay R14 714 546.48 (Fourteen million, seven hundred and fourteen thousand, five hundred and forty six Rand and forty eight cent) to Eskom for the bulk supply of electricity.

Notwithstanding the above proposed indicative times for the interruption of electricity supply, Eskom may, upon 15 calendar days’ notice, serve the right to disconnect electricity entirely and indefinitely should the electricity debt situation not improve.
 
Eskom advises all parties who are likely to be materially and adversely affected by the contemplated interruption of bulk electricity supply to Mafube Local Municipality to take all the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of lives and to limit damages to their equipment, operations and business.
