Eskom stage 7 load-shedding knocking on South Africa's door

South Africa is on the brink of getting hit with its highest level of load-shedding yet — stage 7 — and Eskom CEO André De Ruyter should shoulder the blame.

That is according to energy expert Ted Blom, who recently spoke to eNCA following the implementation of stage 6 load-shedding at noon on Wednesday, 7 December 2022.
 
They're not telling the full story. No power since Monday night. Every time our shedding is due to end, the power comes on for a few seconds, and goes off again until the next shedding.

No ETA or reasonable answers from Eskom.

Same in Centurion. At least we missed some loadshedding slots on account of our power being off in any case...
 
So maybe getting those Turkish power ships despite being not the best option is a good stop gap measure or are we waiting for a total blackout before we get off our collective butts? Stage 7 this year, stage 8 next year, it can only get worse, if nothing is done.
 
Imagine this is all orchestrated from the top to divert attention away from him.

I doubt it. ESKOM is just so poorly run (at all levels) that more bad events will coincide as time passes.
 
Never happen....
Of course it will.

Plenty more hours in the day we can be without electricity. Lots of room for more stages.

Then we get far enough up the LS scale and it becomes "how many hours of electricity do you get every second day".

We're not talking about intellectual rocketships here, we're talking about the ANC. They vacillate and sperg out but achieve nothing bar the occasional latrine in some dirt strewn village.

So yes I think what you've described is the reality.
