Eskom will start stage 2 load-shedding from 09:00 today, and it will run until 22:00.
Eskom said this was the result of a shortage of capacity, and it once again apologised for the shortage.
Load-shedding is a daily fact for South Africans of late, and people have to plan their work and personal lives around the associated schedules.
There have also been reports that load-shedding is here to stay for several years to come.
The tweet below details the latest load-shedding notice.
