An investigation by Johannesburg City Council at Four Ways revealed that the Council lost nearly R9 million in revenue due to illegal electrical connections.
Buildings’ water and sewer connections have not been registered since 2015. It seems to be the tip of the “iceberg” as the investigation was done only in one suburb.
It is believed that new buildings were erected without municipal approval, and there were questions about how and by whom the sewer and water connections were made.
