Kalk Bay and parts of St James had no power yesterday and Tuesday evening due to cable damage.

The power, according to the Cape Times, experienced problems at 8.40pm on Tuesday evening.

Callers phoned in to the city council electricity department about the tripped power. They were told that a cable had been damaged.

Last night residents of the two suburbs were still left without electricity.

The power is expected to be switched on by 2am today. A City of Cape Town control room operator confirmed that the main reason for power failure was due to cable theft.
