SOME parts of Namibia were plunged into darkness on Tuesday night when power was off for about two hours.
The affected areas were those at the coast, northern regions, and central Namibia.
The power utility, NamPower, says it was investigating the cause of a fault that affected the current transformer on the Kokerboom-Aries 400kV line on Tuesday night resulting in a power blackout in some parts of the country.
The power went out at 23h09 and was restored at about 00h50.
In a statement posted on its Facebook page early Wednesday morning, NamPower said a technical fault on a current transformer on the Kokerboom – Aries 400 kV line, caused a loss of power supply that affected Windhoek, the coastal area, and some parts in the North.
