Kindly be notified that we are currently experiencing electricity outage in most areas of our Municipality, due to an unforeseen circumstance, namely; an explosion on one of our transformers this morning, leading to multiple trips at the Eskom Sub-station.
Our Technicians are currently busy at the Sub-station, trying to restore power as soon as possible. However, given the complexity of the situation, it is anticipated that it may take a while to restore power in most parts of the city and its environs, about a day or two in some areas, as a new transformer is being installed.
The Municipality sincerely apologises for the inconvenience caused.
