In an effort to speedily resolve this matter, I have invited officials from Eskom and the City’s Urban Mobility Directorate to a meeting this Thursday, 13 October 2022, to explore possible long-term solutions and interventions to urgently address community concerns. </div><div><br></div><div>Eskom has informed me that it met with the community yesterday, 10 October 2022, and had fruitful discussions with residents and with Councillor Helfrich regarding the situation. While the focus remains on restoring power to the remaining affected areas, I call for calmness in the area and for residents to exercise restraint as the matter is receiving urgent attention. </div><div><br></div><div><br></div><div><strong>End</strong><br></div><p><br></p>2022-10-10T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#dfdcb4f5-2ec2-4bd4-9a9f-3086ef5830a7;L0|#0dfdcb4f5-2ec2-4bd4-9a9f-3086ef5830a7|energy;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#b195be29-9300-4dc7-ac99-92629ce847ac;L0|#0b195be29-9300-4dc7-ac99-92629ce847ac|electricity10
