Areas such as Dobsonville, Zola, Molapo, Mapetla, and Protea North were affected by the outage, due to a fault in Eskom's system, on Monday evening.

The last time there was a power outage in the township, residents went on the rampage, burning 15 cars and damaging seven.

Police had to intervene to allow Eskom technicians to fix the cables. - Sapa
