It’s an economic disaster - Joburg CBD business owner

12 September, 03:47 PM

Joburg business owners are counting the cost of not having electricity for more than a week.

This is due to a failed attempt to steal copper cables in the central business district.

City Power technicians have been working around the clock to restore power, and by Monday 40% of the city's lights were back on.

The power utility has apologised to its customers and in a statement said electricity would be back on by Tuesday afternoon.
