Power cuts cause of concern for matrics results

Teachers and learners have raised concerns that Eskom’s blackouts will negatively affect the results of this year’s matric exams as learners are currently writing exams.

This come after Eskom implemented stage four load-shedding which will continue until Friday. Thereafter Stage 2 load shedding will be implemented until 05:00 on Saturday morning.

Students said the power cuts are making it difficult to prepare for exams, especially since the blackouts happen during peak hours when they are trying to read and prepare.

Businesses have also been seriously affected with the Black Business Council describing Eskom management as completely overwhelming.

It has since called for the power utility’s CEO and the Board to step down. With the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on education the students say the power outages are worsening their situation.
