Eskom’s new Medupi power station in Lephalale, Limpopo, had to be evacuated today following an anonymous bomb threat.
Police spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi says at least six-thousand workers had to leave the site.
The police’s bomb unit and sniffer dogs are combing the site.
According to Mulaudzi, the threat had nothing to do with a strike by workers.
The site was also closed on the 10th of last month after workers damaged vehicles in protest over the employment of foreign staff.
