Eskom is currently threatening various municipalities across the country to withhold electricity from businesses and other customers regardless of them being on prepaid electricity or being up to date with their accounts, citing municipal debt to Eskom. AfriBusiness is opposing it and we need our members and members of the community’s help to collect evidence against Eskom.

We have instructed our legal team to oppose these proposed power outages. We are currently consulting with lawyers and corresponding with several other legal teams involved in different locations in the country. It is necessary to act urgently in order to prevent major damage to local economies. At the same time, it is necessary to address the state, which is responsible for the regulatory environment in which Eskom is a monopoly and which prevents business people from being independent of Eskom.

Your help can strengthen our case: Please let us know if Eskom in your municipality is also threatening to withhold power. Send pictures of notices, other documentation or brief explanations of the situation to [email protected] or fill out the form below.
