Centlec investigating cause of power outages in Bfn


Centlec says they are investigating the cause of power outages which were experienced in parts of Bloemfontein last night.

The spokesperson for Centlec, Lele Mamatu, says preliminary investigations revealed that there were problems at their substations.

He says the power supply in Dan Pienaar, Heuwelsig and parts of Westdene has since been restored. He adds that Centlec is still waiting for investigations to be finalized after they raised concerns about the number of unplanned power interruptions that were experienced in Botshabelo since last week.

Mamatu added that criminal elements were involved and some were deliberately switching off the electricity.
