Eskom has announced the implementation of Stage 2 loadshedding starting at 17:00 – 22:00 this evening. Due to the continued shortage of generation capacity, loadshedding will be implemented every evening at the same time until Thursday night.

“Eskom will continue to closely monitor the system, adjust and communicate any changes as may be necessary.
