ESKOM SUSPENDS INTERRUPTION TO MAGARENG LOCAL MUNICIPALITY
WEDNESDAY, 08 JULY 2020: After restricting electricity supply to Magareng Local Municipality in the Northern Cape since 06h00 this morning, Eskom has received the required upfront payment from the Municipality.  As a result, supply to Warrenton and Warrenvale was restored after three hours.
 
Supply restrictions were implemented as a matter of last resort after the Municipality failed to adhere to its payment obligations with Eskom as described in the electricity supply agreement. 
 
Eskom and Magareng have agreed on an interim payment agreement to address the Municipality’s outstanding debt. This agreement will be revised at the end of 2020.
