Eskom Denies it Wants to Cut Electricity in Certain Parts of Soweto

Eskom has denied that it wants to cut electricity to certain parts of Soweto. 

The power utility says people spreading the misinformation are misleading the residents of Soweto with incorrect information.

Soweto residents have raised concerns about the possibility of Eskom switching off electricity in some areas. 

Eskom’s Amanda Qithi confirmed that there is no list to switch off electricity for communities. 

“There are a number of customers that have been issued with fines and have paid their fines, and subsequently the electricity has been reconnected in those communities. The utility appeals to the customers that have been issued with fines to pay the fines so that their electricity can also be reconnected.” 

Qithi said there have been high levels of criminality such as the stealing of electricity, theft, and vandalism of equipment, which necessitates Eskom to respond by disconnecting those found to be in violation.
