Authorities are not rulling out sabotage.

October 20, 2021

While the cause of the fire is unknown at this stage, authorities are not ruling out sabotage.

Firefighters worked well into Monday night –18 October 2021– to extinguish the blaze at Robertsham substation in Johannesburg

16 areas were plunged into darkness on Monday night.

Mop-up operations are underway at the substation as teams assess the damage caused by the fire. Several suburbs south of Johannesburg will remain off until repairs and replacement work is complete,

Acts of sabotage is an extremely dangerous trajectory which is both opportunistic and strategic. Sabotage intentionally plans to entrench the current uncertainties both politically and economically within the country. Sabotage is there to unsettle people who at their core wish to live at peace, by derailing the few gains we have made to instill a national unity in the country.

By and large these are acts of cowards with access to resources and information to destabilize the country and throw us into a state of chaos. Either way…

Damage to public infrastructure, whether through vandalism or theft, is nothing less than sabotage against the aspirations of South Africans” – President Cyril Ramaphosa
