Here Is Why Soweto Residents Have No Choice But To Accept Prepaid Electricity.

Eskom Gauteng representative Amanda Qithi said the utility's laborers were being compromised and, now and again, beaten by local area individuals for attempting to introduce meters in the municipality.


Qithi said for this present week the local area of Moletsane in Soweto scared Eskom experts when they took a stab at introducing meters. She said that region was a non-paying region and Eskom had no real option except to move the local area from traditional power to part metering.


Qithi said it was the second time that the local area of Moletsane pursued Eskom laborers away. She said Eskom would have no real option except to switch the lights out on the off chance that local area individuals didn't agree. The Star comprehends that Soweto previously owed Eskom about R4 billion. The last obligation Soweto had which additionally rose to over R1bn had been discounted by the power utility.


"On the off chance that they don't permit us to change over them, we will sadly turn off supply. We are introducing split meters all over Gauteng, we are changing over the entirety of our clients who are on traditional to paid ahead of time. In this way, it's only not in that frame of mind in Moletsane," Qithi said.
