Load-sheeding is back in action after Eskom came under severe strain this week.

On Wednesday morning, South Africans woke up to the bad news that Stage 2 load-sheeding was back.

We unreservedly apologise to South Africans for the negative impact this may have on them and want to assure the nation that we continue to work tirelessly to ensure security of energy supply,” said Eskom in a statement.

“As a result of the loss of additional generation, delays in the return to service of units that are on planned maintenance and limited diesel supply, it has become necessary to implement stage 2 rotational loadshedding from 9am until 11pm in order to protect the power system from a total collapse,” said the power utility.

Meanwhile, a detailed rescue plan for Eskom is set to be announced by President Ramaphosa and Finance Minister Tito Mboweni this month
