WATCH | Explainer: Load-shedding again! Here's why and for how long
"Unplanned breakdowns" at the Medupi power station have once again left South Africans in the dark.
Eskom confirmed that South Africans would experience stage 2 load-shedding in an effort to prevent a complete blackout.
This is the first instance of load-shedding since March.
Eskom COO Jan Oberholzer has stated that the power cuts may carry over into next week.
