Cable thieves disrupt Gauteng trains
Johannesburg - Cable thieves have disrupted trains on the Leralla-Tembisa line on the East Rand, rail authorities said on Monday.
"Technicians are working on the problem," said Passenger Rail Authority of SA (Prasa) spokesperson Tony Games.
Buses had been arranged as an alternative transport for commuters, he said.
Trains between Leralla and Tembisa were using a single line because of a power failure caused by the theft, Games said.
"Metrorail sincerely apologises for the inconvenience caused and invites the community to report criminals stealing overhead cables to their nearest police stations," he said.
