Khayalitsha residents in Mangaung, Bloemfontein, warned of imminent power cuts


JOHANNESBURG, May 29 – Residents of Khayalitsha, Mangaung in Bloemfontein, Free State, were on Wednesday warned of electricity supply interruptions in phase 4, due to construction or maintenance upgrades to the network.

The interruptions are scheduled from 9 am to 4 pm on Friday with an alternative date of Tuesday 4 June, said a notice from the Mangaung Municipality.

“The power may be restored without warning at any time during the shutdown period, and all installations must therefore be treated as live and dangerous,” warned the notice.
“Should your power not be interrupted within on hour of the scheduled starting time, please ignore this notice as the scheduled maintenance has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances.”
