Masina issues directive to disable illegal power connections

Published on

Mzwandile Masina took to Twitter to detail the successful mission of disabling illegal connections in some Ekurhuleni suburbs, following a warning he claims to have issued in recent weeks.

The Executive Mayor of Ekurhuleni, Mzwandile Masina took to Twitter on Wednesday, 21 October 2020, to announce the success of a mission to disable illegal connections in some Ekurhuleni suburbs. The suburbs are believed to be predominantly populated by Black citizens. According to Masina, he issued a directive to investigate and inspect illegal connections that have resulted in the grid being overloaded, ultimately leading to load-shedding.

In speaking on the importance of the mission, Masina stated, “Crime is crime, no matter where you live!”

Based on the comments on his tweet, his statement struck a chord because of his recent sentiments on the public arrests of government officials who have corruption allegations levelled against them. Masina had claimed that Black officials and businesses were seemingly being targeted. He went on to encourage collective action amongst Black people, which, in light of his recent mission and directives, appears to contradict itself.
