Why does Eskom not do pre-paid at the Metro level?
Or just give 30 days credit, cut of the metro if they do not pay by day 32.

You can find the financials for these municipalities online. Their numbers have been this way for a while and are trending in the wrong direction.

Their debtors in 90days plus makes up the bulk of their debtors. No normal business would survive long running this way but we know this.

Edit to add: electrical revenue makes up a large part of their income.

Local supply to these towns are provided by the municipality - not Eskom. The municipality buys from Eskom - the end user buys from the municipality.
