Eskom has confirmed that Stage 2 load shedding will start at 16:00 on Monday, May 31, until 05:00 on Tuesday.
The power utility said in a statement that breakdowns in generation units and delays in other returning to service have caused a shortage of electricity.

“Eskom regrets to inform the public that stage 2 load shedding will be implemented starting at 16:00 this afternoon until 05:00 in the morning. This load shedding has been caused by the higher demand as a result of the cold front setting in much earlier than expected as well as high breakdowns of generation units, ” Eskom said.
Meanwhile, residents are urged to reduce the use of electricity as the chances of load shedding during the week remain likely.
