The weekend just got a bit darker for Capetonians and the rest of the country as Eskom has just announced stage 2 load shedding will run into the weekend.
Stage 2 load shedding will be implemented today from 9am, Thursday 20 until 6am Saturday 22, 2020. This as a result of the loss of an additional three units overnight, which has increased the shortage in capacity.
Eskom also predicts a high probability of load shedding throughout the weekend to replenish reserves for the upcoming week.
