Cape Town Mayor Dan Plato urges PRASA to pay its overdue electricity bill to restore Cape Town operations<p>​Electricity supply was cut to Cape Town station as well as stations across the province today. This as the Passenger Rail Agency of South Africa (PRASA) owes Eskom millions in unpaid power bills. <br><br>The closure of Cape Town train station and others across the Western Cape compromises the safe transport of hundreds of thousands of commuters. The train service is already plagued by sustained vandalism through arson and cable theft. </p><p>The suspension of the service is a further indication that PRASA is unable to successfully run its operations. I urge PRASA to get its house in order and settle its overdue electricity bill with Eskom as a matter of urgency.</p><p>It is unacceptable that our commuters continue to bear the brunt of PRASA’s inept running of the service. </p><p><br><strong>End</strong></p>2020-02-26T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#b195be29-9300-4dc7-ac99-92629ce847ac;L0|#0b195be29-9300-4dc7-ac99-92629ce847ac|electricity;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#c939220c-f64a-463e-82d5-22b9981ccb0e;L0|#0c939220c-f64a-463e-82d5-22b9981ccb0e|Eskom1
