Tshwane residents came together over the weekend to feed the workers who worked on the Wapadrand Substation in an effort to restore the power.
Last week a fire damaged the Wapadrand Substation, leaving thousands of Pretoria residents without power.
However, the Tshwane municipality’s worker sprang into action to fix the situation and they had the unwavering support of the Pretoria residents.
Briefly.co.za gathered Tshwane mayor Solly Msimanga took to his official Twitter account to share a photo of residents preparing food for the workers while they were busy fixing the substation.
“I would like to thank residents that are on site preparing food for our staff that have been working tirelessly to ensure that we are able to restore power to our residents. @CityTshwane #WapadrandSubstation,” Msimanga wrote on Twitter.
The post received a lot of reactions from social media users, who praised the community for their kindness towards the municipal workers.
One tweep called Njabs went on to explain the other residents should also be thanked for their patients and prayers.
“I think it’s also proper to thank the “ other” residents for being patient during this trying time, who went to church without hot water to pray for your staff to finish today,” he commented on Msimanga’s post.
