READ: Eskom’s recent two weeks have been the worst ever, with 4 units going offline.
Over the past two weeks, Eskom has had to shut down a number of units for repairs, forcing the utility to switch to daytime load shedding.
According to Crisis Communications manager Menzi Mngomezulu, the morning and evening implementation of Stage 2 load shedding will continue every day until further notice.
” Should any significant changes occur, Eskom will keep an eye on the system and communicate.”
