Message from Ward 25 Councillor, Ockert Fourie:
Good evening all members and residents. Please note that the power supply from the MacDougall Substation will only affect 3 institutions ie. the Gariep Hospital, and the 2 other nearby hospitals and that the repairs to the Substation may be completed by Saturday, so, no cause for concern.
