The Madibeng Municipality is not only disconnecting electricity due to accounts in arrears, a number of residents also found themselves with literally only drops of water after water disconnections were implemented this week.
According to the law water may not be disconnected completely, so residents are left with a trickle.
“Madibeng has contracted Electrocut to cut electricity as well as water supply to households whose municipal accounts are in arrears. Notices were issued and delivered to the properties in April. If you have a pre-paid electrical meter then only your water will be cut should the municipal account still be in arrears.

Why don’t you just save yourself a whole lot of money and irritation and get off the grid; water and electricity. You will be surprised how quickly these systems are paid off. The price of water isn’t going to come down. Harvest your own rainwater and use that during the rainy season.
