The collapse occurred at about 11:26 am this morning.

Supply shall be restored as soon as the grid is back up. We regret all inconveniences,” the Disco added.

EKEDC, in a text message sent to its customers, said, “Dear customer, there is a system collapse on the national grid. Supply will be restored as soon as the issue is resolved. Apologies for the inconvenience.”

The power grid collapse had plunged many parts of the country into a total blackout.
