Could I report a case of theft at the local police against our Municipal Manager and Mayor,because we pay our electricity bill to the council,but they do not pay it over to Eskom. In my opinion it is theft,as I pay the electricity to them,trusting them to pay Eskom with my money. As a result thereof,our electricty is being cut off in the mornings and evenings. This is harmful to our electrical appliances. Our children also need to prepare for the coming exams,and is struggling as the power is cut till 8h30 p.m. by Eskom till the council pay the necessary agreement payments.Please advise me about my rights and what steps I can take against the council.

Thank you
Marlene Slater
