Electricity switched back on at Shayamoya

2016-12-23 06:01

RESIDENTS of Shayamoya that owe Greater Kokstad Municipality for rates and services have had their electricity switched back on after it was disconnected recently. Last week, residents held a meeting with municipality management about reconnecting the electricity, especially for the unemployed.

It was agreed that people must come to the municipality with their house numbers for reconnection. A few weeks ago, tampers flared when about 200 households were disconnected for owing municipality more than R1 000 each.

Shayamoya Concerned Residents chairperson Sihle Mbabala said not all residents have had their electricity reconnected.

“I wish the municipality would speed-up the process and complete the reconnections before Christmas”

On 9 December, theFever reported that municipal spokesperson Sabelo Ncwane had said the municipality cut electricity in order to force people who owe municipality to come and pay.
