How did they get permission to put the actual poles themselves up? Are those legal?

I fail to see how they're breaking the law. It's not like they have an illegal connection without paying for electricity. Sounds more like City Power is trying to protect a cash cow here. They aren't known for having the best reputation.

Don't electrified advertising bill boards and cell phone towers sitting on private property also have illegal connections accordingly then.

Think the issue is it's not on the property. But afaik reselling electricity isn't illegal but only reselling it at an unapproved rate. Municipalities are the only entities that can resell at a profit but I don't see that happening here.

Why wouldn't residents there just sell at the right rate and also rent the pole-space to Vuma too?

This is why we can't have innovation - like:
  • Security cameras - CityPower want $$$
  • Outsurance Pointsmen - CoJ wants $$$
  • Fibre - DA councils want $$$
Time to WhatsApp your ward councillor and remind him that he was voted in and can be voted out.

City power can eat a dick. Municipalities make it near impossible for modern technology to be built with their crazy processes and stupid fees.

Here's an idea. Why don't you go after all the illegal township connections and leave citizen who pay alone so we can protect ourselves from the poor masses.

Come now, don't be counter revolutionary.
