This petition made change with 8,561 supporters!


The honest law abiding people, of the following four towns:

  • Secunda Town
  • Bethal Town
  • Embalenhle
  • Emzinoni


From the Govan Mbeki Municipality. Who diligently paid their electricity accounts, every month, in full, without fail; now have to suffer forced power outages.


These power outages are due to the Govan Mbeki Municipality misappropriating the money they received from the citizens of these towns.


The Govan Mbeki Municipality did not use the money they received from the citizens of these towns, to pay the national state owned electricity supplier Eskom for the electricity provided. This includes the markup that the Govan Mbeki Municipality place on the electricity they resold from Eskom to its citizens.


Eskom started on 9 October 2017 with forced power cuts during the following times:

  • Monday to Friday: 06:00 - 08:00 and 17:00 - 19:30
  • Saturday and Sunday: 08:30 - 11:00 and 15:00 - 17:30

As is clear, these time periods fall exactly during the time of day that impact our children, and our learners (who needs to become our future leaders) the most. Our community's children, now have to suffer:

  • Eating cold breakfast.
  • Using cold water showers.
  • Have to stay hungry until after 19:30, in order to be able to eat a warm dinner, as parents only arrive home after 17:00 from work.
  • Can only start doing their homework after 19:30 when the lights come back on.

The solution this petition requests, is that the following four towns:

  • Secunda Town
  • Bethal Town
  • Embalenhle
  • Emzinoni

Buy our electricity directly from the national state owned supplier Eskom; and thereby bypassing the Govan Mbeki Municipality who misappropriate money paid to them.
