It's not Eskom load shedding. The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality on Wednesday morning advised that their staff were attending to a power outage after a substation in Malabar tripped.

"At Malabar substation, Avalon breaker tripped affecting sections of Malabar, Gelvandale and Hillside," the Municipality said.

It also said that at the KwaDwesi Main Substation, the KwaDwesi RMU feeder had tripped affecting the Joe Slovo area.

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said its technicians were attending to the outages but could not give a timeline.
