The Waterfront tweeted that all shoppers had been evacuated and no injuries had been reported.

Emergency services were on the scene.

"The security ushered us out of the mall after the lights went off. We were not told what happened...," a worker at one of the mall shops who did not want to be named told News24.

"This one woman was still shopping. I had to tell her to drop her goods and leave the store. I had to grab her basket," said another worker.
