THE NAKED TRUTH!
Placement of sophisticated alarm systems on frequently targeted sections of the network are there to assist with the recovery of stolen copper cables and the arrest of the criminals.
Telkom has joint forces with Eskom, Spoornet and the Chamber of Mines to produce more effective legislation to help curb the activities of the illegal scrap dealers by making it more difficult to sell the stolen copper cables.
A reward of up to R50 000 is given depending on the amount of information and the size of cable stolen. Customers can call the toll- free number 0800 124-124 when the cable theft is witnessed or suspected .
In some cases Telkom has been able to track down these thieves. It was a result of a good co-operation between the community and the police in tracking down these thieves and bringing them forward to the justice system.
