Tshwane city finally meets to pay Eskom nearly R900 million – SABC News

Tshwane City faced a deadline Thursday to repay R 900 million of its debt to Eskom after the power company refused to provide local repairs.

Recently, the city started a Tshwane ya Tima campaign to reclaim electricity and all its operating costs.

The amendment has seen the government, business and residents stop paying unpaid and undocumented migrants.

Eskom spokesperson Gauteng Amanda Qithi said: “Tshwane Municipality has paid R876 million in debt to Eskom which is due and paid on 17 June 2022.

The refund comes after Eskom rejected the city’s offer to enter into a debt settlement and spread the word again with Tshwane mayor Randall Williams, asking him to intervene in the city’s unpaid debt. We thank the city for the money paid and trust that it will honor its future payments. “

Eskom said Monday that the city did not pay R908 million which was due on the 17th of last month and paid only R10 million on the 23rd of June as well as R20 million on the 30th of June.

Electricity officials say the city’s non-payment has been negatively impacted by its rising debt of more than R46.6 billion.

Eskom Senior Manager for Customer Services in Gauteng, Daphne Mokwena said they hoped the city would review its status and honor its debt, while Tshwane is the only metro in the country that is paying unfairly.
