And we are back on phase 5


A few hours after load shedding eased slightly and was downgraded from phase 5 to phase 4, South Africa is back on phase 5.

Eskom announced a short time ago that phase 5 will have to be restarted on Tuesday at 10:00 after four generating units gave up overnight.

Phase 5 applies at this stage until 16:00. Eskom is expected to give more information about the schedule going forward later today.

Phase 5 also applied overnight until early this morning.
