Jameson Park for the second day without electricity

Residents of Jameson Park had to endure days without electricity after faulty electrical cables at the power station caused disruptions.


Arthur Thokoane (spokesperson) of Lesedi Local Municipality says the problem is due to ageing infrastructure and the wet weather conditions triggered the problem further. Work to replace the cables was delayed yesterday due to the rain, but Eskom is hopeful that the electricity will be restored this afternoon.


Report any service delivery queries to Lesedi Local Municipality’s customers care centre on 016 330 0400 or after hours on 016 341 3116.


UPDATE: The electricity was restored at around 13:00 this afternoon.
