[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.
