Eskom wrongfully disconnected family's electricity - Public Protector

Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has released her report on what she termed 'the ordinary man' regarding Eskom. The Khumalo family in Cape Town, was wrongfully disconnected from their prepaid electricity meter and charged R12 000 tampering fee.

She [Madonsela] says that the owner admitted tampering with prepaid meter because it was faulty, it wasn't working and for almost two years they were using the electricity illegally because Eskom had not come to fix the problem.

What Madonsela said is that at the end of the day the family reported the matter, said that the meter is faulty and wanted it to fixed by Eskom, who didn't do it and that's why this family resorted to using the electricity illegally.

EWN's Gia Nicolaides says the Public Protector also spoke about former SABC COO Hlaudi Motsoeneng, saying she will sue the Communications Minister and SABC board if they reinstate Motsoeneng following the Supreme Court of Appeal's ruling.

Nicolaides says the Public Protector said she will release low profile and high profile investigations before she leaves her office in two weeks.
