Johannesburg – Power was restored on Sunday afternoon across large parts of Johannesburg after outages that started on Saturday night, City Power said.

City Power said in a tweet after 13:30 that power was fully restored.

"All areas affected by the maintenance are now 100% restored. We appreciate your patience & sincerely apologies [sic] for the inconvenience," it said.

Planned outages – for maintenance purposes – were implemented in various areas from 23:00 on Saturday. Power was scheduled to return at 06:00 but largely failed to take place.

City Power said it had experienced “delays”.

By noon on Sunday power had been restored to Kensington, Lombardy, Houghton Estate, Orange Grove, Sydenham, Linksfield, Killarney, Glenhazel, Wynberg, Kew, Norwood and Little Falls.

City Power’s Louis Pieterse was not immediately available to comment.
