‘Massive failure’ leaves Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay with no power, utility says

BUENOS AIRES — A “massive failure” in an electrical interconnection system has left Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay completely without power, a utility distributor said Sunday.

Parts of Chile and southern Brazil are experiencing outages as well, said Edesur, the Buenos Aires-based company.

In a statement on its website, Edesur said a “collapse” in its system occurred around 7 a.m. (6 a.m. ET).

A tweet posted just before 10 a.m. (9 a.m. ET) said the company had begun generating electricity in the Argentine capital and the surrounding area. It said restoring power would take several hours.

About 20 minutes later, Edesur said it had restored service to about 50,000 customers.

The cause of the failure is under investigation, the company said.

The Argentine Interconnection System, which experienced the failure, handles the bulk of Argentina’s electricity. It is one of two such systems in the country, the other being in the Patagonia region.

The three countries experiencing total blackouts are home to a collective 55 million people.

ATM calls for support for Mkhwebane’s ‘sterling work without fear or favour’

The African Transformation Movement has called on all South Africans to support Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane ”in her sterling work as she executes her mandate without fear or favour”.

The ATM had been following with ”shock and disgust media utterances attributed to” the Democratic Alliance on Mkhwebane’s removal, the ATM said in a statement.

The DA’s call ”exposes its wanting understanding of the Constitution, and also confirms its long harboured vindictiveness in opposing Mkhwebane’s appointment from the very beginning”, the ATM said.

The constitution provided that a public protector could be removed by a two-thirds parliamentary majority on grounds of misconduct, incapacity, or incompetence. ”No competent authority has pronounced on any of the grounds at this time,” it said.

Mkhwebane had been very hard at work since she took office and had resolved numerous matters impacting vulnerable people who could not afford legal representation.

Out of thousands of reports, ”only a handful of some 100 formal reports already released are being challenged, and fewer still set aside by courts. Reports so set aside are on appeal, and therefor in abeyance, making it irrational and premature for the DA to be citing such incidents in its attack on the PP”.

”As lower court judges are not dismissed for being reversed by higher courts, it is absurd to attempt to abuse the review mechanism for political expediency.

”A number of court dismissals can never justify removal, and do not indicate even alleged incompetence, as the PP’s batting average will remain high, and her commitment will remain beyond suspicion, by the very fact that she is prepared to take a stance in the face of possible challenge,” the ATM said.
