Did he wear shoes?
They say he stepped on the cables.
Shoes wouldn't pass the current through? Would it?

Residents must be really pissed off.

EDIT: On a serious note, they KNOW it's a problem, they KNOW there are illegal connections, they KNOW it's causing problems but they haven't done **** about it in two years? Yeah that's top-notch municipalling there.

“We are busy planning an operation to cut off the illegal connections,” Mangena said. Yeah because it takes so much planning.

Step 1
Find illegal connection.
Step 2
Cut illegal connection.
Step 3
Shoot the living **** out of the people attacking you.
Step 4
???
Step 5
Profit.
You're actually wrong here. A resident was shot and several assaulted during protest action where normal tax-payers attempted to get the attention of authorities after many years of their calls falling on deaf ears.

Article says he works there. Why not just piss at work, or at the shops? Dude did illegal thing, got bzzd.
I wonder if there was someone with him or did they just find him lying in the grass with his dick out ?

I feel for the dude but flip I hate people pissing on the side of the road. Its really dangerous to just pull over on the highway and get out the car. Then people always need to piss on something for some reason so you see yellow marks on walls etc.

FFS.... we are not animals.

No fully believe you. But the article states they removed the connections two years ago, people protested and they connected again, and then they were not cut off again. It's bullshit.

The man had parked his car on the side of Nirvana Drive and went to answer the call of nature when he met his tragic death.
Such flowery speech ................

"Is that nature calling?"
/answers call ......
"See you soon"

Unfortunately he stepped on live wires that run from the streets lights and into the informal settlements. He died at the scene.

Police should trace that wire from that light and charge every person whose shack was connected to that street light with culpable homicide.

Yeah...like that'll happen. They couldn't get township dwellers to stay inside during lockdown.

It happens. Not all shoes are electrically sound. That's why you get stuff like safety boots.
What shoes, as en example, aren't?

EDIT: It's significantly simpler to assume the person was walking barefoot or that their feet went under the wires and it touched exposed skin.

That was Mythbusted.
IRRC it was a flimsy attempt and they used low voltage. I think they just tested what would happen if you pissed on an electric fence. So not the same as pissing on exposed cables lying on the ground.

If you make a puddle on the floor and it shorts the live and neutral it might cause enough of a bang you make you fall on the wires.

If it's not an approved safety shoe, I wouldn't step on cables with it. Simple.

For example:
