POWER OUTAGE CAUSED BY VANDALISM AND THEFT

Power failures in Silverton and Silvertondale were due to vandalism and theft of feeder cables, the City of Tshwane said on Monday.

"The City's depot and test section is currently on site busy with the repair works," municipal spokesman Lindela Mashigo said.

Power was expected to be restored to the area by midnight on Monday.
