The Witness - - NEWS -

THE north­ern sub­urbs, Bis­ley and Mount Michael were once again plunged into dark­ness in a mas­sive power outage on Wed­nes­day night.

These ar­eas were left in the dark from around 7 pm with elec­tric­ity in some ar­eas only be­ing re­stored af­ter 10 pm.

Msun­duzi Mu­nic­i­pal­ity spokesper­son Thobeka Ma­fum­batha said nu­mer­ous sub­sta­tions ex­pe­ri­enced faults.

Ma­fum­batha said that the power took longer to re­store in some ar­eas as most of the elec­tri­cians were busy else­where. — Wit­ness Re­porter. • newsed@wit­ness.co.za
