Electrical danger

Illegal electricity connections have plagued the Lenasia Extension 1 community. In the picture a man is seen connecting electricity from a cable on a street pole in broad daylight. The connections are said to be supplying over a thousand households at a new informal settlement, behind the railway line. Due to the illegal connections, street lights have become disfunctional. The connections travel several meters into the settlement held up by trees and pinned down by rocks.
