Bring an end to illegal electricity connections- Shongwe
Mpumalanga Community Safety, Security and Liaison MEC Vusi Shongwe has called on
Emalahleni Municipality to come up with a strategy to urgently bring an end to illegal
electricity connections in the area particularly in informal settlements.
Shongwe was responding after one of the residents who spoke during the Public Hearings
conducted on Wednesday, 4 March 2015 at Lynville Stadium near Emalahleni said most
of the people in informal settlements were connecting electricity illegally.
The hearings were part of Taking Legislature to the People (TLP) Programme taking
place from 2 to 6 March 2015 in the Municipality.
