Eskom has announced that Stage 2 load-shedding will start from 9am until 11pm today, 22 March, after the country was hit by consecutive days of Stage 4 load-shedding since 16 March.
The state utility said there is still a shortage of capacity. Earlier this week the Eskom board with the minister of Enterprise Pravin Gordhan said they have no timeframe of when load-shedding will end and that an investigation into the current electricity problems will only be complete within 10 days.
Friday, 22 March 2019: Eskom is currently implementing Stage 1 rotational loadshedding. Stage 2 will be implemented from 09h00and will continue until 23h00 today. This is due to a shortage of capacity
