Esko has warned that stage 2 load-shedding will be implemented from 12 pm on Friday.

Eskom’s COO Jan Oberholzer explains: “Overnight we lost two units – one at Majuba, where we had a boiler tube leak and at Kendal we had some mechanical failure at the bottom of the boiler. So we’ve started the morning extremely under pressure.”
