Three substations in Soshanguve to the north of Tshwane were left without power following the theft of three main feeder cables in the early hours of this morning. Repairs are underway and it is estimated that power supply will be restored around 22:00.
Only Soshanguve Block W, S, R, X, X Buffer, KK, T, V, Tswaing, Y and P are affected.
The City apologises for the inconvenience arising from these despicable acts of criminality.
All customers affected by power failures are urged to report the failures in order for the City to establish the extent of the outage. Customers should report failures at customer care centres, on 012 358 999 or SMS the word "power" to 44676.
Residents are urged to treat all network points as live at all times.
