Fix your candle lights and charge your devices because Eskom has announced that they will implement Stage 2 power cuts at 9pm on Thursday.
It will be implemented again on Friday night until Saturday morning.
The power utility’s breakdowns amount to nearly 15,000 megawatts while planned maintenance is over 5,000 megawatts.
Eskom says that if the reserves do not recover, South Africans may be facing a weekend of no power.
“In order to replenish emergency generation reserves, Stage 2 loadshedding will be implemented starting tonight from 21:00 to 05:00 in the morning, and will again resume on Friday night at 21:00 to 05:00 on Saturday morning” tweeted Eskom
