Eskom suspends loadshedding for the weekend

Loadshedding has been suspended for the weekend. Eskom says that they did not plan on cutting electricity for the next two days.

They have implemented loadshedding again on Wednesday and Thursday evening to build reserves after not being able to bring a few units back online after maintenance.

Eskom said that because the demand for electricity would blow over the weekend, they would use this time to build up emergency reserves so that they are prepared for higher electricity demand next week.

Spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha said that while this is the case Eskom requests people of South Africa to continue to use electricity sparingly as the system does remain vulnerable and unpredictable.
