"Eskom embraced an activity to turn off the power for all families. That isn't reasonable. Families are unique. There are individuals who utilize a prepaid power framework and others get a month to month power bill. So Eskom ought to distinguish the guilty parties and manage them and leave the individuals who are agreeable and paying," said Bopape.


 Katlego Lefutso, 32, repeated Bopape's opinions.


"Eskom acquainted another framework with purchase power locally. Eskom began an undertaking to introduce prepaid meter confines our families yet that venture isn't finished. They have not finished their undertaking and they are presently rebuffing us. We can't buy power on the new framework since it isn't done and we don't have a clue how it works," said Lefutso.
