JOHANNESBURG – Eskom implemented load-reduction in various Katlehong and Vosloorus communities in Ekurhuleni until 10 pm on Friday evening.

The power utility said the planned power cuts were used to target areas with rampant illegal connections that could overload the grid.

Affected communities included Thokoza, Mabuya Park, and Vosloorus extensions 1 to 37.

Eskom urged residents to switch off their electrical appliances to avoid power surges when supply is eventually restored.

The utility has been criticised for appearing to target townships when rolling out load reduction, but Eskom denied this.
