Durban in the dark

To follow on the previous post, if you thought Doberman was exaggerating.


Durban - Residents and businesses in the south of Durban could be without power for a week after a pylon collapsed, Beeld newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The pylon, which carried cables between the substations at Lotus Park and Isipingo, collapsed after thieves stole the bolts that kept it grounded, said Tony Dold of the eThekwini municipality.

This means that Prospection, Isipingo and surrounding areas would be without power for days, if not an entire week, said Dold.
