Eskom cuts power in large parts of Katlehong and Vosloorus

JOHANNESBURG - Eskom has cut power to large parts of Katlehong and Vosloorus.
The utility said this so-called load reduction would last until 9 am on Wednesday.
Eskom said it was turning off people's electricity to prevent network overloading in high-density areas.
It has called on residents in these communities not to report the outages.
Earlier this week, Eskom announced that it would implement load reduction in four different provinces; Gauteng, Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal and Mpumalanga.
Through load reduction, the power utility hopes to protect the grid and reduced the usage during peak hours.
Customers from affected areas are urged not to log faults during this time.
