AT least six frustrated families from Rowan Place in Boughton have been in the dark sporadically since Friday last week.

Irene Neyt said she had to throw away about R500 worth of meat in her freezer due to the power outages. Another resident, Harry van Rensburg, said the problem had been going on for four to five years.

Msunduzi Municipality spokesperson Brian Zuma said technicians were working on fixing the problems.

“It’s common knowledge that we’ve been experiencing a pocket of outages. Boughton is not the only place. There are a couple of other areas, like Sweetwaters. But our technicians are working on it,” he said. — WR.
