Eskom proceeding with interruption of bulk supply to Kai Garib Local Municipality
 
MONDAY, 5 NOVEMBER 2018: Kai Garib Local Municipality’s failure to honour its payment agreement has left Eskom with no other option but to interrupt bulk supply to the Municipality. As published in a notice on 22 October 2018, the interruption will commence tomorrow, 6 November 2018, and will continue until an agreement has been reached.
 
Kai Garib Local Municipality is currently indebted to Eskom in the amount of R159 230 680.01 for the bulk supply of electricity, part of which has been outstanding and in escalation since August 2013.
 
Consumers in Kenhardt will be affected by the planned supply interruptions. Eskom urges all electricity consumers affected to make sufficient arrangements to limit personal and business loss and to ensure that effective contingency measures are in place to prevent serious injury of loss of life that might result from scheduled interruptions.
 
Temporary scheduled disconnection will be effected at the following times:
 
Week 1 (6 November 2018 – 12 November 2018)
Monday to Friday Saturday and Sunday
​06:00 – 08:00 ​08:30 – 11:00
​17:00 – 19:30 ​15:00 – 17:30
