The Makana Municipality based in Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape is breathing a sigh of relief after its payment plan to settle its electricity debt was approved by Eskom.

The municipality is among those who owed Eskom and the power utility threatened to cut power during certain hours.

On Wednesday Eskom approved the third version of the municipality's payment plan after rejecting the previous two.

Acting Municipal Manager, Rian Meiring says, “In the plan is that, R23 million would be paid to Eskom by the end of March 2017 and the rest of the debt which totals R58 million would be then paid up by December 2019.”
