Residents across Johannesburg have posted on Twitter to alert City Power that they have no power, reports Rosebank Killarney Gazette.

City Power has posted that the power outages are due to the Mulbarton feeder which tripped. This has led to a total loss of power supply at the Mondeor substation.

Twitter users flooded the City Power Twitter account, informing them they have no power. Affected areas span from Kyalami to Craighall Park. At least 45 suburbs have been affected.

The first reports came from Craighall Park.
