Cape Town - The Western Cape has been hardest hit by faults in Eskom's prepaid electricity vending system, Independent Online has reported.

And millions more across SA are affected as Eskom battles to get the system running properly again.

In Khayelitsha, people queued from dawn on Friday, while elsewhere others made a desperate dash for their nearest vendors, the website said.

The Cape Town Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry said it had received complaints from Parklands to Noordhoek, while Eskom said affected vendors included everyone from spaza shops to Pick n Pay, according to the IoL report.

Eskom’s Hillary Joffe said the utility had “over four million prepaid customers countrywide”, of whom 400 000 to 500 000 bought electricity every day. Joffe said on Friday the Western Cape had been hardest hit, according to the report.
