Eskom has announced that it will extend Stage 4 load-shedding into next week.
Fault repairs after scheduled power cuts are often interrupted by further load-shedding.
Eskom’s intensifying power cuts are not only caused by unlawfully striking workers, but also because it missed its own deadlines.
Wits University Business School visiting professor Jannie Rossouw warns that deregulating South Africa’s petrol price may have unintended consequences.
Eskom has declined to give an updated load-shedding outlook, but warned that power cuts could get much worse.
Stage 4 load-shedding will take effect from 11:00 until midnight on Friday, 24 June 2022.
