Electricity comes to Riebeek Kasteel but for the coloured community, it is only the Mission Church and a coloured school teacher’s house that are on the list to receive electricity. Oukloof will remain in the dark.
The church in the end never received electricity. According to interviews with Ouklowers, money was raised for a generator for the church.
