No, its not Eskom load shedding. The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality on Tuesday morning advised that their staff were attending to power outages after two substations tripped.

"At Kragga Kamma substation, lost supply on Salvia and Fourie breakers affecting Westering and surrounding areas," the Municipality said.

It also said that it was aware that a section of Deal Party and the Grahamstown Road area was without power.

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