Bruma and Cyrildene in the dark
Eastern Johannesburg suburbs, Bruma and Cyrildene, have been without power for several hours.
JOHANNESBURG - Parts of Eastern Johannesburg have been without power for several hours now.
Residents in Cyrildene and Bruma said they were been frustrated by the outage on Christmas Day.
Some also added that their food had already started going off or that they were unable to have a decent Christmas lunch.
This woman is in Bruma and said she has been without power for around six hours.
"Our Christmas roast is half done. We haven't had any food to eat whatsoever, except for a peanut butter sandwich and the ice cream that was melting in the fridge."
It is unclear at this stage how long it may take for city power to restore electricity there.
City Power officials said their technicians were busy with the problem and should have it resolved soon.
