Johannesburg - Engineers are working on power outages in Boksburg, the Ekurhuleni metro said on Wednesday.

The power supply to Sunward Park and Freeway Park was lost at 1am on Wednesday when two feeder cables were broken, said spokesman Themba Gadebe.

One was fixed at 2.15am. The other one was still being repaired.

The suburbs would have three-hour rotations of power from the working cable until the second one was fixed, said Gadebe.

“The municipality wishes to apologise to the affected residents and assures them that all is being done to restore the power supply as speedily as humanely possible,” he said. - Sapa
