JOHANNESBURG Eskom has cut electricity supply to some areas in Orange farm due to non-payment.
Municipalities, individuals and businesses owe the utility around R40 billion across the country.
Eskom said residents in Lakeside extension 1and 2 stopped its officials from conducting audits and disconnection in the area.
Gauteng senior manager for operations MotlhabaneRamashi said ‘we’ve got about 2,686 customers in that area and only 4% of them are paying. So, if you take a conservative figure of say about 650 units per household, you’re looking in excess of about just about R1.5 million we should be getting per month and we are not gettingit at all.
