Power failure affecting Waterkloof Ridge and nearby suburbs

Update: Power failure affecting Waterkloof Ridge and nearby suburbs

At around 03:00 on Sunday, 31 March 2019, three cables that transmit electricity to Waterkloof Ridge and nearby suburbs were damaged, leaving residents in the area without power. City of Tshwane technicians were dispatched and are still onsite making every effort to effect repairs.

Furthermore, bringing back power supply to the area has been stalled by the fact that the City’s workmen had to break a slab and dig the ground in order to access some of the damaged cables. Last night, the first cable was energised but it got burnt.

The following areas remain affected: 

  • Waterkloof Ridge
  • Erasmuskloof
  • Monument Park

It is estimated that power supply to these suburbs will be restored around this evening.   

Consumers are advised to treat all electrical points as live.

Affected customers are urged to report power failures by SMS. SMS the word power followed by your account number to 44676.
