Johannesburg - Residents of Valhalla were without power on Wednesday after a cable in a transformer was burnt, the City of Tshwane said.

This caused a power failure in Constantia Avenue and Godiva Road on Tuesday night, spokesman Lindela Mashigo said in a statement.

“The city's technicians are currently on site busy with repair work.”

Power was expected to be restored to the area by midnight on Wednesday. - Sapa
