Eskom blames residents for nine-month blackout
Doornkop community asked to pay fine for reconnection
Power utility Eskom says illegal connections, tampering of mini-substations, vandalism and theft are some of the reasons behind the nine-month blackout in Doornkop extension 4 in Soweto.
As such, Eskom says the residents should pay an upfront payment of R500 to have electricity restored in their area. ..
