Stage 2 Powercuts implemented from this Afternoon

Eskom has implemented stage two rolling blackouts from 2pm this afternoon until Saturday.

Eskom CEO Andre de Ruyter has given an update on the country's fragile power system as the utility continues to battle breakdowns.

De Ruyter has said the Power Utility has insufficient generation capacity at their disposal and they have no alternative but to implement stage two load shedding from 2pm this afternoon until 5am on Saturday morning, the 20th of November

On Tuesday, five units at their aging and inefficient power plants went offline.

De Ruyter said they were also dealing with two boiler tube leaks at the Kusile and Medupi plants.

The Power Utility is urging all residents to reduce the demand on electricity when they have it.
