CAPE TOWN – Police on Saturday said they would clamp down on people who continue to sell electricity illegally.

An Eastern Cape woman is the latest person to be arrested for selling power for R300,000.

It’s believed she’s been running the operation since 2018 and offering her clients a bargain in return.

She appeared in the King Williams Town Magistrates Court on Friday.

The police’s Khaya Tonjeni said: “It is further alleged that the accused has clients as far as the Western Cape and is working for a syndicate based in Gauteng. Investigations continue and more arrests are imminent. The case was postponed to 30 October 2020 for a formal bail application and the suspect has been remanded in custody.”
