Various parts of Soshanguve, north of Tshwane, are experiencing blackouts following acts of theft and vandalism of electrical components today. Repairs to the damaged components are currently underway.
The following areas are affected:
- Soshanguve Blocks P, R, S, T, U, V, X, Y, SS1-SS5, KK and TT
It is estimated that repairs would be concluded and power supply restored in all the affected areas by midnight.
Residents are once again urged to report suspicious/destructive activities around the City's infrastructure to the Tshwane Metro Police Department on 012 358 7095/6. This despicable and selfish act does not only cause power supply interruptions but also poses a danger to community members because of the live wires that are left hanging.
The City apologises for the inconvenience that is caused by this outage.
Consumers are advised to treat all electrical points as live.
Affected customers are urged to report power failures by SMS. SMS the word "power" followed by your account number to 082 612 0333. Alternatively, report a power failure by calling 012 358 9999, choosing the electricity option.
