‘Illegal contractor’ connecting Northern Cape and North West residents to the electricity grid
Eskom disconnected homes that were illegally connected to the grid in the Northern Cape this week.
“A disruptive operation was conducted in conjunction of security intelligence, Kimberley public order police and Eskom, focusing on illegal electricity connections,” said Sgt Dikeledi Gopane, the provincial police spokesperson.“Cables were disconnected in 21 houses, of which homeowners paid R3,000 each for this illegal connection to the contractor who is alleged to be busy with the same illegal electrification process in Tlapeng Village in North West jurisdiction.”
Gopane said poles and other equipment worth R150,000 were confiscated.“A case docket has been opened and investigation is currently under way to address the suspect responsible for the illegal connection.”Read more: Sowetan LIVE »
It happens like this in many informal settlements. Corrupt Eskom employees connect up homes using Eskom time and equipment. They work for a “line boss” who collects the monthly charge which he shares with the Eskom employees who work for him. Better life for all.
