Service Delivery Interruptions


Parts of Thembisa are currently without power supply due to a substation that was set alight during a community protest in the township yesterday (Monday, 01 August 2022).

While the City is aware of the current situation regarding the power in the area, unfortunately, our technicians are unable to attend to the problem as the situation in the township remains volatile – thus putting their lives at risk.

Areas affected are the following:

  • Parts of Thembisa 1;
  • Clayville;
  • Olifantsfontein;
  • Winnie Mandela; and
  • Birch Acres Extension 23 to 35.

The City commits to attend to the outage as soon as the situation on the ground becomes stable and the safety of the workers can be guaranteed.
