Stage 2 of load shedding
Stage 2 Eskom load shedding to kick in from 9am to 10pm again today
The power utility continues to face supply challenges, with hope that we could return to Stage 1 today being misplaced.
On Wednesday night, power utility Eskom warned South Africans that the risk of Stage 2 rotational load shedding would remain high for Thursday.
On Thursday morning, the utility confirmed what has now become a routine occurrence.
There were reports and hopes that the power utility would be able to scale down to Stage 1 after doing maintenance work for days. However, that was overly hopeful.
Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe said on Tuesday that the situation is only likely to improve from Friday as a number of power generating units have remained out of service.
Eskom also released a statement dismissing social media rumours that the power would be out all day in any area of the country.
