    • Wentworth,
    • Brighton Beach,
    • Jacobs, and
    • Edwin Swales

    “During this outage, the public is advised to treat all electrical installations as live. For further information and enquiries relating to the outage, call the contact centre on 080 3111 111,” the municipality said.  


    Meanwhile, on Friday, 1 July, the eThekwini Municipality announced that it has opened some of its becahes as it gears up for the Hollywoodbets Durban July this weekend. 

    All beaches in the eThekwini Municipality were closed to the public following the April torrential rains which caused damage as well as high E.coli levels. 

    EThekwini Municipality spokesperson, Msawakhe Mayisela said they decided to open the beaches following the latest water quality results which indicated that E-Coli levels were within acceptable standards. 

    “The public can now enjoy bathing and other sporting activities at these beaches,” Mayisela said.
