Here Is What Has Caused The Electricity Crisis According To Eskom.

CAPE TOWN - Vandalism might be at the focal point of Tuesday's mass blackout in Cape Town.

Occupants and holidaymakers were left in obscurity later a messed up safeguard wire, fallen links and ensuing veld fire broke out on Monday night.

Capetonians can't be faulted for feeling that Tuesday's power outages denoted the arrival of burden shedding, yet it appears to be that some other person or thing might be dependable.

Eskom said that they got a report of a breaker trip around 7.30pm on Monday night.

At the point when they showed up on the scene, a fallen high-voltage link and broken wire had touched off a kilometer-long veld fire, harming a few different lines and causing blackouts at their sub-stations.

Firemen combat during that time to contain the blast.

Eskom acting senior supervisor Atika Brey said that whenever fixes were finished, they would be investigating conceivable injustice.

"That is being scrutinized right now. We're doing an appraisal into why we disliked the safeguard wire. With respect to the links that were in the passage, there is doubt that it is defacing that made the harm those links," Brey said.

Eskom assessed that they would have the option to finish brief fixes and get the Mother City back up online by 3pm on Tuesday.
