City Power spokesperson Isaac Mangena said that the Johannesburg Prison was also affected by the outages.
A city Power substation has caught fire in Eikenhof, south of Johannesburg, resulting in power outages in areas that include Naturena, Kibler Park, Alveda, Rand Water, Eikenhof, and Logharin.
“City Power technicians have been dispatched to the site and we should be able to determine the extent of the damage,” Mangena said. Mangena said City Power will continue to provide updates as and when new information becomes available, and apologized for the inconvenience caused to the affected customers.
