Vandals have caused one-million-Rands worth of damage to the City of Cape Town’s electricity infrastructure in Steenberg. Two substations were set alight.

The Metals Theft Unit spokesperson Neil Arendse the motive appears to be malicious damage as the affected equipment was left untouched.

“Sugarbird Crescent, Sea Winds, were set alight when vandals made fires with tyres next to the transformers. The motive at this stage appears to be malicious damage as the affected equipment was left untouched.

“We need communities to take ownership of the electricity infrastructure that supplies their neighborhood and to report any suspicious looking persons or actions to the Copperheads or SAPS as soon as possible,” said Arendse.
