Eskom To Stick With Stage 4 Loadshedding For Now


Eskom says in a statement that "Stage 4 loadshedding will continue to be implemented daily until 05:00 on Sunday. Thereafter, Stage 2 loadshedding will be implemented until 16:00. This is necessary due to the need to recover emergency generation reserves, and the generation maintenance to be implemented in preparation for the coming week."
