Eskom proceeding with interruption of bulk supply to Khai Ma Local Municipality

WEDNESDAY, 11 JULY 2018: Khai Ma 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 the notice on 19 June 2018, the interruption will commence on 12 July 2018 and will continue until an agreement has been reached.

Khai Ma Local Municipality is currently indebted to Eskom in the amount of R11 512 447.00 for the bulk supply of electricity, part of which has been outstanding and in escalation since May 2016.

Consumers in Poffader 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.

Monday to Friday Saturday and Sunday

06:00 – 08:00 08:30 – 11:00
