Cape Town - Eskom announced that South Africa would be in stage 2 load shedding for most of Friday due to a shortage of generation capacity.

Eskom issued a statement late on Friday afternoon to say it had moved from stage 1 to stage load shedding as from 10am and that this was expected to continue until 10pm on Friday.

“This is due to a further shortage of generation capacity and to build up reserves to lessen the impact of load shedding,” the power utility said.

“The electricity supply system remains very vulnerable due to a shortage of generation capacity as several units are currently out of service due to planned and unplanned outages,” Eskom added.
