Train services in Western Cape fully restored after Transport Minister intervenes

Train services in the Western Cape, South Africa were fully restored on Thursday (February 27) after Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula intervened.

Speaking at a news conference Mbalula said: "There was no train all afternoon and that is why it was important for us to intervene and sort it out."

Train services in the Western Cape came to a halt earlier on Thursday as power utility ESKOM cut power to the trains due to non-payment.
