Kwadukuza Power Outage is not due to Load Shedding

Messages are currently doing its rounds on social explaining the unscheduled power outage in Kwadukuza. Details are still unconfirmed.



[07/11, 1:16 PM] broadcast : electricity outage

From reliable sources , Stanger’s electricity will go off from 2 pm today ( Saturday ) for a possible 6 hrs , due to some vandalism / theft at main transformer ...

This is NOT due to load shedding ......

please be prepared for this outage !!!!


[07/11, 3:02 PM] update : electricity outage

Eskom is still waiting for some personal and equipment to arrive , hence the delay .... major clients of KDM like Sappi , have since shut production down etc , in anticipation of outage ..... apologies for the 14h00 notification as that was the initial plan , will update if I get any further news.


[07/11, 3:15 PM] update : electricity outage

KDM technicians are currently switching off areas systematically to reduce the load .... some areas are off already ....... the planned outage will definitely continue as most teams ( Eskom ) have now arrived.


The pics show evidence of vandalising in an elledged break-in at a major substation in Kwadukuza.
