President Cyril Ramaphosa says municipalities and government departments owe Eskom approximately R50 billion in debt. The president conducted his final quarterly question and answer session in the National Assembly for this year.
He says a multi-disciplinary revenue committee was established to ensure that this debt by municipalities and other government organs to Eskom is paid.
The debt owed stands at more than R50 billion and the executives who qualified for free electricity since April when a new ministerial handbook was issued and since withdrawn, must pay, however, the amount is still being determined.
The matter of whether the executive leadership at Eskom should be changed to ensure energy stability was also raised, but the president said the board at the power utility will inform the shareholder of what changes are needed.
