citypowerSABC News reports that two people have been arrested for allegedly attacking a City Power contractor in Alexandra, north of Johannesburg.

City Power spokesperson Isaac Mangena says the pair were apprehended after they allegedly attacked one of the technicians and stole equipment on Tuesday. He added: “Unfortunately the equipment that was stolen was not recovered, but the police are on a trail. I think we should also extend gratitude to the residents that assisted the police in the arrest of these two. We are hoping that those criminals that did this and that stole our cables, joints and tool boxes, are arrested and brought to book and taught a lesson – municipal and government workers are not be attacked, as they are there to provide services to the residents that need it so much.”
