SP Group posted on their Facebook page that its officers were immediately deployed to the affected areas and its priority was to restore supply as safely and quickly as possible.

It then added that electricity supply was progressively restored via remote switching and supply was fully restored within 34 minutes, by 3.15 pm.

“We are investigating the cause of the disruption,” the group said.

Other than offices and retail outlets, the power outage also affected traffic lights in the CBD area.

Some people posted about the blackout to their social medias, saying that even traffic lights were affected.
