Today, Eskom will commence the interruption of supply to the eMalahleni and Msukaligwa municipalities in the Mpumalanga Province as communicated in a final decision notice.

The areas affected by power interruptions include Doornpoort, Churchhill, Kwa Guqa, Witbank and Ermelo.

The interruption of supply as a result of non-payment remains an agonising decision for Eskom and is a means of last resort. However, Eskom will not be implementing bulk power supply interruptions to the Northern Cape municipalities of Ubuntu and Renosterberg that were scheduled to take place yesterday. This is after both municipalities arranged payment plans for the settlement of their arrears.

To avoid interruptions, defaulting municipalities need to meet the following requirements:

  • A cash payment as  negotiated with each municipality.
  • A written undertaking in the form of a Council Resolution that current accounts will be honoured moving forward.
  • A payment plan for the arrears supported by a Council Resolution.

Should the municiplaities meet these requirements , their supply interruptions will be suspended.
