Thoughts Lead To Appreciation
Seconds later, the energy supply was interrupted. It was not to be resumed for another four full days.
The cause was a senseless woman who thought nothing of pruning a tree over transmission cables.
That was until a heavy branch fell on the cables, causing damage to the power transformer.
The four-day power blackout [from 11:49 hours; Sunday 2016 July 31 – 12:01 hours; Thursday 2016 August 4], though not entirely the fault of the electricity distribution company, is laid at their feet for failure to prosecute or penalise the woman who caused the transformer glitch.
That was a clear case of gross vandalism, yet no one except we the people bore the consequences – 4 days of zero electricity available to us.
