Eskom has announced that it will implement Stage 2 Load Shedding this weekend. The loadshedding will be implemented from 12:00 today, 05 February 2020 until 23:00 on Sunday, 07 February 2021 evening at 23:00.

Eskom says that “load shedding has been exacerbated by the forced shutdown of five generating units at the Medupi Power Station as a result of the inability to get coal into the units due to heavy rain last night”.

Kaalfonentein, Allandale, Ebony Park (KAE) and surrounding areas of Ivory Park, Rabie Ridge, President Park, Glen Austin, Lindokuhle and Tswelopele will be affected on the below times:
