    Default These 10 municipalities owe Eskom a combined R9.8bn

    Parliament has vowed to deal with staggering debt municipalities owe to Eskom‚ with just 10 defaulting councils owing the power utility close to R10-billion.

    The Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) said in a statement on Wednesday that it was particularly concerned that “some municipalities who are able to pay are reluctant to do so”. Those municipalities were not named.

    Scopa chairman Themba Godi said the committee would also take aim at the 10 biggest defaulting councils‚ and would haul them to Parliament to explain themselves.

    “Scopa has also resolved to call the top 10 defaulting municipalities to understand why they are not paying their debt. Scopa notes that the top two defaulting municipalities are in the Free State,” he said.

    Ouch. I can believe that if I look at what our roads etc look like. Money is just disappearing, heck they dont even have money for diesel for the refuse removal trucks.
