South Africans has taken to social media to voice out their frustrations after Eskom announced that stage 4 shedding will start at 13:00 on Monday.
This follows a “major incident” in Zambia that affected power supply from Cahora Bassa, the power utility said on Sunday.
Stage 4 will last until Friday morning, after which Stage 2 will continue until Saturday.
Eskom spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha said they had no choice: “It is necessary to ration the remaining electricity generation reserves, which have been extensively utilised this morning as we are not getting a reduction in demand that we expected from the implementation of stage 2 load shedding.”
