‘Lockdown level 2, but stage 2 load-shedding

Rolling blackouts across the country are back on Thursday after Eskom announced it would implement stage 2 load-shedding.

The power utility said there was a “high chance” it would increase load-shedding to stage 3 in the evening.

Eskom cited plant breakdowns as the reason and appealed to SA to use power sparingly.

After five months of lockdown, with SA having some of the harshest restrictions in the world, many took to Twitter to vent.
