Not quite northern suburbs listed there. More like Central and Western

Fairland AGAIN - just for a change. They are constantly having power outages there. Obviously no powerful bodies live in that suburb.

Don't you think it's time you started proper maintenance City Power. That's why we pay for the services and electricity. You have to maintain they don't last forever. What's so difficult to understand?

Oh dear, Ekhuruleni had their turn yesterday. Any likely story they will tell. Bet Mozambique and our other supplied countries don't have these kinds of interruptions, if any at all.
