OSHAKATI, 01 NOV (NAMPA) –There will be a power outage in Oshakati and surrounding villages on Sunday, Oshakati Premier Electric (OPE) has announced.
The outage will be experienced from 06h30 till 19h30, OPE said in a media release issued on Wednesday.
The disruption will be caused by construction on another power line.
“NamPower is busy constructing the 400 kiloVolt (kV) line between Ruacana and Omatando and needs to relocate an existing power line to allow stringing of the new 400kV line.”
The entire Oshakati town, including the villages of Embandu, Ontuli, Oniimwandi and Oshaandja will be affected.
OPE has noted that during the power outage, the power supply must at all times be treated as live, as the power will re-energise without prior notification.
