Electricity will be off in Van Stadens Gorge area

Electricity will be off in the Van Stadens Gorge area due to the fires.

Nelson Mandela Bay municipal spokesman Mthubanzi Mniki said due to the risk that the fires pose, technicians have been advised to wait until the fire is under control before moving in to fix the problem.

Areas that will be affected include Chatty, Kwanobuhle, Winterhoek Park, Thornhill, Gamtoos, Loerie, Driftsands, Lovemore Park, a section of Despatch and parts of Walmer.

“The municipality pleads for patience, tolerance and cooperation  during this time,” he said.

Mniki said fires are still burning  in areas such as Victoria Drive.

“But they are under control,” he said.

“Only Van Stadens Gorge remains a challenge due to strong winds in the area.”
