Eskom has suspended services to parts of Khayelitsha due to ongoing criminal activity in the area.

Khayelitsha has been in the spotlight this week following a mass shooting at a local barbershop. Four people died, including three small children.

Eskom said on Tuesday it had temporarily suspended services to eNdlovini in southern Khayelitsha following an attack on its team by armed men on Sunday.
