Update: all power to Motherwell restored.

No, its not Eskom load shedding. The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality on Monday morning advised that their staff were attending to power outages in Motherwell after a substation tripped.

"Lost power at the Motherwell North substation, affecting a large section of Motherwell," the Municipality said.

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

On Saturday morning, Rowellan park, Summerstrand, Seaview and large parts of the Western suburbs, were without power following a problem at a Substation in Rowallan Park.

Meanwhile, Eskom on Monday said there was a low chance of load shedding as the power grid was stable.
