South Africans are known for their humorous reactions to adverse conditions. Currently, the topic we can’t seem to get enough of is Eskom and load shedding. Besides bringing families closer together, Eskom has been accused of rekindling romantic flames and forcing people to talk to each other in the absence of electronic devices.
Here are some hilarious reactions from locals who have been left in the dark:
Stage 5 and Stage 6
