In a statement, the ailing parastatal said loadshedding will continue to be implemented on a daily basis at Stage 1 between 5a.m and 4p.m and Stage 2 loadshedding between 4p.m and 5a.m until Monday.

Spokesperson, Sikonathi Manthantsha saidtThe continuous implementation of loadshedding is mainly due to the need to preserve emergency generation reserves owing to a high level of breakdowns and the delay in returning some generating units to service.

‘’Since Thursday morning a generating unit each at Camden, Duvha, Kusile and Majuba power stations were taken offline for repairs. The delay in the return to service of a generating unit each at Majuba and Tutuka power stations have contributed to the generation capacity shortages.’’

‘’A generating unit at Hendrina Power Station was returned to service,’’ he added.

Meanwhile, the City of Cape Town said its customers will only experience Stage 2 rolling power cuts between 10p.m and 5a.m, with Stage 1 and Stage 2 load shedding coming into effect on Sunday and early hours of Monday
