The City of Tshwane Municipality ) has settled its debt by paying a full settlement amount of R876 million on Tuesday, 07 July 2022  owed to Eskom which was due and payable by 17 June 2022.

The payment comes after Eskom rejected the City’s offer to enter into payment settlement arrangements and escalated the matter once again to the Tshwane Executive Mayor, Randal Williams, requesting his intervention in the City’s erratic payments.

“We thank the City for the amount paid and trust that it will honour its future payments,” says Daphney Mokwena, the Eskom Senior Manager for Customer Services in Gauteng.
