Mangena added that they ordered a new mini substation to be installed. For security reasons we have decided to move the mini substation from the location where it was stolen to around the school vicinity so that it’s visible to the school security.”

Anyone with information about the stolen transformer and the suspects is urged to call the nearest police or City Power Security Risk Management control room at 011 490 7900, 011 490 7911 or 011 490 7553.
