The City of Johannesburg's MMC for Public Safety, Mgcini Tshwaku, has urged residents in informal settlements to refrain from using illegal electricity connections and to exercise increased caution during the winter season.

Tshwaku made this appeal at Kya Sands informal settlement in Randburg while launching a door-to-door fire safety and burns prevention campaign alongside EMS executive head, Chief Andries Mucavele.

The campaign aims to address the increase in fire incidents during the winter season by alerting residents about the dangers of neglecting electrical appliances and using illegal electricity connections, Tshwaku said.

This can be controlled with extra vigilance in handling electrical appliances and refraining from using electricity that is not legally connected, he added.
