Eskom update 01 March 2017. Eskom and the municipality agreed on a new arrangement and cooperation this morning. This was followed by a further meeting with the Premier, Minister GOGTA and Eskom and over the next week government and the municipalities with similar problems will be engaging in working on support interventions to ensure that electricity provision will become sustainable to them. This agreement with Eskom see the removal of the thread of bulk interruptions for now. My sincere thanks go to the Executive Mayor and CFO as well as to Government and especially Eskom's top management for the hard work and leadership in making this new agreement possible. More details will follow. Kind regards.
From the office of the Municipal Manager
