Power failure hits the city centre

By Nadia Samie

The Cape Town CBD and surrounding areas, including the waterfront, have been hit by a power failure.

Eyewitnesses at the Waterfront reported that the centre is in darkness, and nobody has been forthcoming with information regarding the blackout, which occurred at quarter to three this afternoon.

Eskom has said that the City of Cape Town is responsible for supplying power to the affected areas. Charles Kadalie for the City, says that the fault does indeed lie with the city…

Earlier in the week, Eskom confirmed the possibility of more power cuts in the Western Cape. At a press conference, yesterday, Eskom ceo Thulani Gcabashe said that parts needed to be brought in from Europe to fix a faulty generator, which was damaged by a lose bolt.
