Metrorail spokesperson Lillian Mofokeng says the disruption in services were caused by the theft of overhead cables.   

 

"As a result, we had commuters that stormed into our depot at Naledi and vandalised about 15 personal cars of our train staff and the access gates to the Naledi station," says Mofokeng.
