“By law we are required to do so. We have to ensure that there are no electrical hazards,” Peters added.

The department’s role as the industry’s Electrical Safety Regulatory Bodyis to protect users of electricity against the hazard of unsafe and improper electrical installation.

  1. Plain and simple brother those thieves strived on corrupt money kick back was the name of the game. If you wanted to play you had to pay. They are like a cancer blood suckers. Why do you think they are screeming rigged election. No more kick backs no more power and they are totally embarrassed at loosing twice 2011 and 2015

  2. For years, the GPL was knowingly compromised by consumers who used more electricity than they paid for because GPL officials were on the take. And both GPL and the PPP regime knew. Does anyone know why Welch fired two senior managers that resulted in Dindiyal overturning the decision and the eventual brouhaha? CORRUPTION!
