Mareseleng Village has power

Doctor Semosa of Denzhe Electrical tests the plugs.

BURGERSFORT – Operation Mabone contractor, Lufuno Mphaphuli, electrified all the households of Mareseleng Village last Friday.

A celebration was organised at Mareseleng Sports Ground and was attended by the local villagers, traditional leader, Kgoshi Sinah Malapane, local councillors and chairman of Tubatse Resident Association, Morewane Sekhukhune.

Young and old members of the community chanted, blew whistles and sang in celebration when lights in the rural village were switched.

People from about 840 households had the opportunity to use electrical stoves and kettles for the first time in their lives.

Jones Mojalefa, Eskom’s customer representative, urged the locals to use electricity sparingly.

“Avoid misusing your power. When you wash your laundry don’t just put a few clothes in the machine, put a pile of them in to avoid using more electricity.”

The villagers were also given energy-saving globes and power-saving tips.

“The bulbs we have given you are top-notch. They save power but also ensure visibility at night. I suggest you get used to them and avoid the 100-watt lights,” added Mojalefa.

Malapane highlighted the joy of having her village electrified.

“We did not want to celebrate before the lights were switched on. Now we have reason to celebrate. It took us years to get electricity but finally we did.”
