JOHANNESBURG - The Ekurhuleni Municipality has confirmed a power outage affecting large parts of Boksburg.
Power went out this morning at around 7am.
The municipality says this was as a result of an explosion of an incoming circuit breaker from Eskom to Ekurhuleni.
Affected areas include Parkrand, Sunward Park, Freeway Park, parts of the CBD and Boksburg east.
Spokesman Themba Radebe says, "We would like to inform the Boksburg residents that our engineers are already on site, working around the clock to ensure power supply is restored in the area."
