Eskomโ€™s infrastructure is under attack. In Mpumalanga, landownersโ€ฏnear its Emalahleni electricity hubโ€ฏ say power linesโ€ฏ running through their properties have become the latest target for cable thieves. Itโ€™s a significant and unwanted challenge for a utility already struggling to meet electricity demand and generally failing to keep the lights on. The MO is simple: criminal syndicates - possibly operating on insider information โ€“ wait for overhead transmission lines to be switched off for maintenance before swooping for their loot. With deployed security and the police apparently powerless to stop it, the landowners are often the last line of defence for infrastructure critical to the supply of power to large parts of Gauteng.โ€ฏ Find more exclusive content on Carte Blanche: The Podcast: https://bit.ly/PodcastCB
