Sheriff Seizes eThekwini Municipality’s Electricity Department

The eThekwini municipality says it has no plans to repay millions of dollars owed to an electrical contractor and will fight the attachment of its assets ordered by the Kwazulu-Natal High Court in Durban.

This comes after officials were seen on Thursday carrying computers and other equipment out of the electricity department’s offices and loading it onto a flatbed truck.

“Our legal team is currently contacting this company to request that they stop whatever they are doing, failing which we will have to seek a court injunction.The case is being reviewed by the Supreme Court of Appeal “Mayisela stated.

Assets in the eThekwini municipality’s electricity department were attached following a high court order.
