Eskom has announced that it will continue with stage 4 load-shedding this coming week.
The company said citizens must prepare for the following power cuts:
- Stage 4 load-shedding on Sunday evening until 23:00.
- Stage 2 load-shedding from Sunday 23:00 until Monday 09:00.
- Stage 4 load-shedding from Monday 09:00 until 23:00.
It added that South Africans can expect “up to stage 4 load-shedding” on Tuesday, too.
The power cuts are due to a shortage of capacity, and Eskom said it was working to bring units back online.
It stated that stage 4 load-shedding is “no cause for alarm”, however, as “approximately 80%” of the country’s electricity demand is being met.
