    This is the problem with semantics, buzzwords, and general "spin".

    We are having load shedding, right now.
    We have been having load shedding since Friday.

    The fact that the mines were "load shedded", but Eskom calls it something else, does not change the fact that certain electricity users have had their power cut off (or substantially reduced) by Eskom. Why? Because of an inability to provide them with power.

    It's loadshedding. You can call it anything you want, it does not make the rose smell any less sweet.

    They published a loadshedding schedule in the Cape Times today. Couldn't make sense of it - tried for 10 minutes.
