The utility kicked off the campaign last week when it disconnected power to businesses in Alexandra.

City Power said that it targeted five customers, who collectively owed R24 million, including a block of flats that was disconnected in 2022.

It said that it would intensify its efforts by rolling out these operations twice a month for the next 12 months across the city.

“The customers included Johannesburg Hotel which owes R9.9 million, The Reef Hotel owing R13 million, sports betting company, Betfred owing R3 million, and two block of flats that are illegally connected. One of the flats had illegally re-connected themselves,” said City Power spokesperson Isaac Mangena.
