Furniture, vehicles seized due to Emfuleni’s Eskom debt

BREAKING: Eskom says furniture and vehicles belonging to the Emfuleni Local Municipality in the Vaal Triangle were seized this morning to help settle its unpaid debt owed to Eskom. Eskom spokesperson, Sikonathi Mantshantsha, says in total, Emfuleni owes Eskom R2.3 billion. He shared videos of the Sheriff of the Court removing vehicles and furniture from an Emfuleni municipal building in Vanderbijlpark. Some of the property that was attached included vehicles, desks, chairs and cupboards. In 2018, a court judgment ruled that Eskom could recover R615 million in this debt from the municipality. Mantshantsha tweeted they have issued another summons to collect the balance. According to Mantshantsha, this was not the law's first visit to the municipality as the sheriff visited on March 2 as well. (More on this story in today's 90.6 FM TV News.
