Electrification update

During the Media briefing held on 20 March 2018, the Mayor of Matatiele LM had this to say on electricity:

You will recall that in my inaugural speech in August 2016, I made commitments to the people of Matatiele that, we will take this municipality forward in transforming their lives, I further indicated that this Council shall invest our efforts in making Matatiele a better place to live in.

We have from 2016, managed to reduce our electricity backlog – in 2015 our electricity backlog was sitting at 45%, I can now proudly say that we are sitting at 34%, which we are working tirelessly to reduce the number even more. Through electrification projects, about two thousand, nine hundred and fifty households are being connected to the national electrification grid and close to three hundred and fifty jobs for local people are being created.
