Xalisa, Mr Z R to ask the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs
With reference to (a) his reply to question 1681 on 26 June 2018 and (b) the reply by the Minister of Energy to question 2351 on 29 August 2018, what is the (i) name and (ii) location of each ward in the country that does not have access to electricity as at 1 June 2018?
The information requested by the Honourable Member is not readily available in the Department. However, the Department has engaged various municipalities and stakeholders in an attempt to collate the requested information and through this process we have learned that the requested information is only collated through the Stats SA Census. The last Census took place in 2011
Should the Honourable Member have an interest in viewing the requested information at municipal level, the information can be obtained on the following website: www.wazimap.co.za .
