Good morning Howick residents,

Please note that there are people illegally blocking the road in KwaMevana.

The residents are refusing for the municipality to conduct an electricity meter audit.

Mevana has high electricity theft and residents have aggressively threatened contractors when inspections were started.

The municipality is losing R60 to R80 Million a year on electricity theft. These are funds that could be used for service delivery.

The power outage was caused by a mechanical fault in the feeder line. Power in Mevana will not be restored until residents allow teams to conduct a meter audit.

If you have any family or employees in the area, please encourage them to comply. It is illegal to steal electricity.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

*Regards*

Cllr CJ Pappas

Mayor

uMngeni Local Municipality
