A sudden power failure in large parts of Cape Town had Capetonians scratching their heads in confusion and checking the loadshedding schedules; however, this morning’s power outage is not loadshedding-related.
City of Cape Town accounced that technicians were attending to a power outage in the metro’s Area 2, but could offer no cause as of yet.
Power is being restored to Area 2
City teams are working to restore power to parts of Area 2, including Montague Gardens, Kensington, Century City and surrounds.
An exact restoration time is not possible to give yet, but it could be relatively soon if all goes to plan. #CTNews pic.twitter.com/xIjZztf142
