JOHANNESBURG – Eskom has confirmed that stage two load shedding will be implemented from midday Friday.
The power cuts will continue until Sunday evening.
Spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha: “Load shedding has been exacerbated by the forced shutdown of five generation units at the Medupi power station as a result of the inability to get coal into the unit due to the heavy rains in the Lephalale area last night.”
Last month, South Africans had to endure load shedding after Eskom failed to bring some units back online following maintenance.
The power utility warned the country that the system remained vulnerable and unpredictable and it may need to escalate the rolling blackouts if there were any more breakdowns.
#Loadshedding We regret to inform you that load shedding stage 2 will be implemented from 12 pm today until Sunday evening. More information to follow shortly— Eskom Hld SOC Ltd (@Eskom_SA) February 5, 2021
