Weekend ends on stage 4 note


Phase 4 load shedding will be implemented from 14:00 Sunday to 05:00 Monday followed by phase 3.

This phase will apply on Monday from 05:00 to 16:00 followed by phase 4 from 16:00 to Tuesday at 05:00.

As things stand now, load shedding will alternate between phase 2 and phase 4 from Tuesday.

Eskom says one generating unit each at the Camden and Matla power stations has been put back into service in the past 24 hours. However, one generating unit each at the Duvha, Grootvlei, Kriel and Matla power stations was put out of action during this time for repairs.

Eskom is also currently experiencing a delay in the return of a generating unit at Kendal and two generating units at Tutuka.

The power supplier says this delay contributes to the current capacity constraint.
