Around Moroke Sekutlong there are certain families having a problem with electric pole, the pole number is 06 C09. This pole connects four houses and one of them connected illegally and it affects other houses.

On 05 April Mrs Thobejane called Eskom they sent someone (didn’t asked him his name), they gave them a reference number to prove they reported, so Eskom employee said he didn’t find any problem because it’s alleged that  the house with illegal connection has two Meters and they showed him one that doesn’t have a problem.

On 16 April they called Eskom and they gave Reference again and they referred them to Lebowakgomo, they said they were promising but even today we are still waiting them. They said “we are afraid because our fridge and other things may be damaged because of this problem”. By Tokelo Mahlakoane
