A dangerous Situation


A concerned citizen of Piet Retief recently contacted Excelsior News to report a possibly hazardous situation in Joubert Street.

As seen in the attached photograph, the covers of these two electrical boxes are on the ground in front of them, the reason being that they are not even the right size to fit on the boxes.

This leaves electrical cables exposed and could cause power outages and even injuries if someone touches them.

Apparently, the situation has been reported to the Mkhondo Local Municipality’s electrical department a few times but, they have not made any effort to repair it. This should be a priority and receive immediate attention.
