17 October 2019 - 14:58

"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.
