DURBAN – AGEING infrastructure and cable theft are the cause of constant power outages in the Glenwood, Umbilo and other surrounding areas within the eThekwini Municipality.
This was revealed by the city’s electricity unit, which said it was working on the issue.
Over the past few months, Durban residents from these suburbs have experienced a succession of power outages apart from the rotational load shedding which has plagued the country.
Residents complained that due to power outages they have suffered damages to appliances and they feared they could be targeted by criminals. They accused the city of failing to notify them of planned outages.
