Power was restored in the Moot on Monday after residents were left without electricity since Saturday.

The Tshwane metro issued an alert on Saturday evening that power supply in East Lynne had been interrupted as a result of faulty equipment.

“A power failure is due to a trip at Koedoespoort substation, but it is unclear when the power will be restored,” said metro spokesperson Lindela Mashigo.

Mashigo however, said some residents were still without electricity on Monday afternoon.

He said it often happened that a few individual homes remained without power even after the electricity had been restored in the affected area.

“That could be an individual case and we urge complainants to call the city and our technicians will attend to them,” he said.

Resident Stephne Jordaan said her power had still not been restored, even after calling the metro.

“I called nine times from Saturday and the metro has been telling me that technicians are on the way, but even to this hour, my house remains with no electricity.”

Mashigo said complainants should call again and give their reference numbers and the problem would be attended to today.
