Electricity theft costs Eskom R15 million a day

I said to one of my staff, a Mashopi from Inhambane province in Mozambique, that we have a lot of illegal connetions is SA because electricity is expensive but people are poor.

He replied "The people in Mozambique, are they poor".

"The poorest in the world"

He then said "So why then don't they steal electricity in Mozambique?"

And there is is right there, illegal connections are because the Zulu Twat in a Hat is Minista of Police.

No. Other. Reason.
 
MIllions of people from rural Africa flocked to SA to live in squatter camps where Eskom provided FREE ELECTRICITY and water. At home they would collect firewood to cook food and haul water from rivers.

The magnitude of freeloaders crashed the electricity system because of overload ... same as with municipal water and sewage systems!

Eskom and the ANC never believed that there is 'no such thing as a free lunch' ... somebody always have to pay.

The tragedy of the SA Failed State is that they ran out of money ... the FREE FOR ALL PARTY is now over.

Because the paying citizens have left the country!
 
I have a question. During Apartheid, did the townships have electricity or were they left to burn candles? I honestly don't know - did they actually run power to them? I know they had working hospitals, our domestic says she remembers how good the afrikaans nurses were when she was a child.

If they did have power, were they paying for it? I mean half of Eskom's excuse is people aren't paying and they're stealing. Did they do that during Apartheid too?

My understanding is that some townships did, some didn't.

From what I've read something like a little over half of the country had access to electricity in 1994/1995. That must have, by sheer numbers of people in SA, included many townships.

My understanding is that the government was already embarked on a campaign to electrify the entire country.

With Mozambique's lack of a proper distribution grid for electricity I'm impressed that they have a significant number of illegal connections.

Moz R36 million in 6 months or R200k a day.

SA R1.5 million day.

Your foreigner was still talking rubbish. Trying to justify what they doing here is worse than there, when they do exactly the same. Pfft...

Are those Facebook marketplace ads for cheap electricity actually real?

I'm really tempted to try and purchase to see if it works.

Then, if I find it true, my life at Cape Town will be fantastic

100% you're stealing and causing the issues, plus kinda falling in line with the SA stereotype of foreigners
