We have all been complaining about Eskom implementing loadshedding and it mostly not by purpose. They usually implement loadshedding because it is necessary.
However, citizens are too greedy to buy electricity to the point where they connect cables illegally to get access to electricity. This kind of act is very dangerous to others because people can trip over the cables and get electrocuted.
The children reportedly tripped on an exposed live electricity wire in the Mangolongolo informal settlement. According to City Power, the informal settlement is a hot spot for illegal electricity connection.
City Power conveyed its condolences to the families of the two children. The Johannesburg municipal power utility, City Power, on Saturday warned residents to stop illegal connections after two children were electrocuted to death at the Mangolongolo informal settlement, near Cleveland.
Please leave a comment. What's your take on this matter? Do you think people who get access to electricity illegally should be arrested?
