FF Plus pleads with Ekurhuleni Metro Council to attend to exposed electrical wiring

Published on

The FF Plus has written a letter to the Ekurhuleni Metro Council Municipal Manager, Dr Imogen Mashazi, urging her to look into the matter of exposed electrical wiring in the metro.

The Freedom Front Plus (FF Plus) issued a statement on Tuesday, 21 September 2021, in which it warned the Ekurhuleni Metro Council about exposed electrical wiring at lamp posts in the metro. The party sent an urgent official letter to the municipal manager, Dr Imogen Mashazi, to look into the matter.

The party noted that this urgent appeal to the municipal manager was in response to an incident that happened in Boksburg North, whereby a six-year-old learner from Goudrand Primary School was electrocuted after accidently touching live power lines on a lamp post.

The learner is said to have been walking home with a parent when the incident occurred. The FF Plus further urged Mashazi to urgently attend to the matter, as it could have disastrous consequences for the metro.
