Subsequent to the recently Electricity Meter Audit conducted by the Ray Nkonyeni Municipality, the residents and the local businesses are warned and encouraged to refrain from performing illegal Electricity connection acts or tempering with electricity.

In its endeavor to fight against electricity material losses, Ray Nkonyeni Municipality conducted electricity meter audit and found a number of illegal connections mainly from businesses even though there are some residents who are also culprits in this regard. It should be highlighted that these illegal connections result to the municipality and honest residents subsidizing the culprits.

All the culprits in this regard are called upon to voluntarily approach the municipality within the next three months so that an agreement can be reached on individual settlements. After the expiry of the three months period the municipality will act harshly against those found to be culprits and have failed to voluntarily expose themselves and will face heavy fines and may even face legal consequences.

All the illegal Electrical connections can be reported to our Customer Care Line at 039 688 2027 or email services@rnm.gov.za or SMS 32061 (R1 per SMS) or they can approach our Electricity Section on 039 688 2015.
