It's a domino effect, every one has lost something. Be it a TV, fridge or buying an ups, generator, solar panels or even a battery powered light. We have spent money on things that we should not really need but are forced to because eskom can't manage their power plants. We all spent money that should have been used for day to day living on surge protectors and portable lights. So yes, every one has had a loss in some way or other!!!
