East Rand power woes continue
Technicians have been tending to outages in Sunward Park and Freeway Park.
JOHANNESBURG - Ekurhuleni municipal officials are still trying to resolve power problems on Gauteng's East Rand.
Technicians have been tending to the outages in Sunward Park and Freeway Park since early on Wednesday morning.
Some residents living in Boksburg say they've not had power for the past two days.
Ekurhuleni spokesperson Themba Gadebe says officials restored the first cable at around 2am.
"The second cable could not pass the test and as a result, we had to rotate the power supply between the two areas."
Meanwhile, electricity has been restored to several suburbs in Johannesburg, including Bramley, Waverly and Houghton.
This follows a fault at a substation.
