Eskom suspends interruptions to Matjhabeng Local Municipality
FRIDAY, 09 NOVEMBER 2018: On Friday, 09 November 2018, Eskom published notices announcing its intention to interrupt bulk supply of electricity to Matjhabeng Local Municipality due to the Municipality’s failure to honour its payment obligation towards Eskom for overdue debt of R2 009 691 840.12.
The Municipality and Eskom have since come to a new agreement, resulting in the suspension of interruptions due to be implemented on 28 November 2018.
Matjhabeng Local Municipality’s next payment to Eskom for the bulk supply of electricity is due on 03 December 2018. Should the Municipality fail to honour its commitment, interruptions will be implemented on 10 December 2018 as per the following schedule:
