City switches on Masiphumelele<p>​</p><span><p>This City celebrated with residents in Masiphumelele who were connected to the electricity grid for the very first time. The City’s electricity teams also reconnected customers in the area who had their meters damaged or destroyed by the recent fire. The project will connect 387 homes and a total budget of R4,5 million will be spent.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:983px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span><p>‘We are delighted to share this special moment with the residents of Masiphumele today. Thus far, we have connected 109 homes and we will switch on the remaining homes over the coming months. In City-supplied areas and on City-owned land, almost all informal settlements in the metro have been connected, where it has been possible to do so. The City thanks the teams who have worked around the clock to connect the homes thus far and we remain committed to enhancing the living conditions of many residents before the winter months.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:884px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>​​​​​​</p><p>‘School learners who are currently enjoying their school holidays, will now be able to study late in the evening and not by candlelight when the new school term resumes. The City thanks the community for their patience while we continue to carry out the remaining work and we ask residents to please be our eyes and ears and to report any suspicious activity near electricity infrastructure to the City and the South African Police Service (SAPS),’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Energy, Councillor Beverley van Reenen, who helped to switch on the first homes in the electrification project.</p><p><strong>Report damage to municipal electrical infrastructure:</strong><br>SMS: 31220 <br>Email: <a href="" target="_blank"></a><br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="" alt="" style="width:967px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span><strong>​​Anonymous tip-offs welcomed and reward offered </strong><br>Residents can give anonymous tip offs if they are aware of illegal activity.
