Johannesburg - Power has been restored in parts of Johannesburg that experienced a power outage at about 4pm on Friday, City Power said.

The power outage was due to a technical problem on the sub-transmission network, said spokesman Louis Pieterse.

Areas that were affected included Newlands and Lenasia.

The power was restored at around 7pm.
