Soweto residents protest over power cuts

Dube residents in Soweto are protesting against power cuts. They say they’ve been without power for months.

The residents say the local councillor is not doing anything to assist.

“We tried to engage the councillor, he hasn’t come anytime we’ve had several meetings,” said community leader Lungile Lebethe.

“We even took initiative to go to Eskom in Sandton. He didn’t show up for a meeting yesterday [Wednesday]. All he says is just giving us feedback from Eskom.”
