City of CT wakes up in the dark due to alleged technical fault

Parts of Cape Town are in the dark.

The City of Cape Town has confirmed on Monday that a technical fault on the grid has caused blackouts in the city’s Area 7.

It’ll be a frustrating Tuesday morning for thousands of Capetonians.

Parts of Cape Town have been without power for hours.

The City’s Twitter account called it “a technical fault on the grid”.

It said technicians have been working to restore electricity as one of the main feeder lines from the acacia high voltage substation to Montagu Gardens and Eskom’s Tafelbaai high voltage substation has been lost.

A fire affecting infrastructure is exacerbating the situation.

Cape Town’s mayor, Geordin Hill-Lewis, said at least one high voltage line was down across the N1.

He said fire and electricity teams were on site “working to put out fires and get to repairing the cable and restoring power”.
