ILLEGAL ELECTRICITY CONNECTIONS REMOVED IN ETWATWA

Cables

Large volumes of illegal connections – mostly running underground at an open field near Shamase grounds - were removed on Tuesday, 16 October around 9am, by Eskom personnel under the protection of the EMPD and SAPS officers.

The illegal connections pose a great danger to children who use that space for playing, as well as overloading the grid causing numerous outages.

Due to several previous attacks on Eskom personnel trying to remove the dangerous cables, EMPD and SAPS officers had to be present this time around to prevent the any attacks and ensure removal of the cables.
