EEC aims to recover E40m from defaulters

By Ntombi Mhlongo

The Eswatini Electricity Company (EEC) is owed around E40 million by defaulters, especially those in the business sector.

As a result, the parastatal has announced a major disconnection exercise for defaulting post-paid customers.

The announcement was made last week through a public notice where the parastatal said that it had commenced a major disconnection exercise on all overdue accounts.

According to the public notice, the disconnection started on January 25, 2023, and will run until March 31, 2023.

“Customers are requested to pay all their overdue bills to avoid being disconnected,” reads part of the notice.

Speaking on the national broadcaster, the Eswatini Broadcasting and Information Services (EBIS) today, EEC Marketing and Corporate Communications Manager Khaya Mavuso pleaded with defaulters to come forward.

“We have sent officers to some of the business entities that have outstanding bills with the hope that they will then comply. Seeing that they have not complied, EEC then took the decision to tighten the rules in order to recover the money,” Mavuso said.

He explained that once the owing entities come forward, an amicable way of making the payments will be found.

“We know that all over the country things are not going well in terms of finances which is why our hands are open for engagements with the owing business entities,” he said.
