The National Energy Regulator of South Africa (Nersa) says Johannesburg Mayor Herman Mashaba’s recent statement on tariff hikes is “misleading and mischievous”.
This after Mashaba said in a statement on Wednesday that Nersa was “rewarding corruption at Eskom” by telling municipalities to impose a 15.63% tariff increase.
Mashaba said he would write to the South African Human Rights Commission asking it to urgently investigate the decision.
However, according to Fin24, the energy regulator says no tariff increases have been approved for any municipality for the 2019/2020 financial year.
