Mayor unveils R3.8 electrification project for Malukazi
​Mayor Zandile Gumede fl anked by Municipal Councillors at
the launch of the Malukazi informal settlement electrifi cation
project.
IN A concerted effort to continuously improve the lives of informal settlement residents by delivering basic services, Mayor Zandile Gumede has officially launched a R3.8 million electrification project in Ward 89 to benefit 1 200 households.

Addressing Malukazi informal settlement dwellers on 5 September, Mayor Gumede said the project is one of the City’s many vigorous efforts aimed at improving living conditions in informal settlements. “We are starting to deliver on the objectives of a memorandum of agreement we recently signed with Shack Dwellers International Alliance,” she said.

The community of Malukazi rejoiced when Mayor Gumede announced that a contractor has been appointed. As a result, implementation of the project has already began. “This is the continuation of electrifying this area as we did phase one last year. We want to ensure a better life for all and not for a few people,” she added. The R3.8 million includes the installation of infrastructure and connecting households to the electricity network.

Residents will benefit from the 11 job opportunities that will be created from this project. Mayor Gumede then urged residents to refrain from illegal electricity connections and cable theft. “Let’s pay for our services in order to stay connected. The culture of payment is important and it shows responsibility,” she said. Residents who utilise 150 units of pre-paid electricity monthly are eligible to receive free basic electricity of 65 units.
