Eskom has announced that a payment agreement has been reached with the Tswelopele Local Municipality in the Lejweleputswa District.

The agreement was concluded on Thursday (26/04), resul­ting in the suspension of the interruption of bulk power supply to the municipality.

Eskom published a notice on 16 March that an interruption in power supply to the municipality would take place from Thursday (03/05) due to failure to pay Eskom debt of R33 258 224,97.

Eskom has warned that, should the municipality de­fault on the payments, interruptions would take place with 14 days’ notice.
