25 years of “freedom”. Is this sustainable?

The George municipality says a second death due to illegal electricity tampering has occurred in the past 12 months.

30 Y.O male electrocuted last week in Zone 8, Thembalethu, while illegally tampering with municipal electrical infrastructure.

The deceased allegedly attempted to operate and tamper with the high voltage fuse links protecting the transformer. He died in hospital later the same evening.

Edwards-Klose says zone eight in Thembalethu is hamstrung by illegal connections, making the electricity supplies to legal consumers unreliable.

In August 2018, a man was killed while trying to run a wire across a ravine from New Dawn Park, Pacaltsdorp to the informal settlement, All Bricks in Thembalethu. Edwards-Klose says attempts by the Municipality to clamp down on the illegal connections have been relatively unsuccessful and the Municipality strongly condemns such illegal connections as they not only pose a risk to the life of the person attempting the connection but also are of extreme danger to any child, adult or animal in the area.
