South Africans are far from impressed with the power company and wasted no time sharing their thoughts of anger and frustration online. Read a few of their interesting views on the temporary suspension of load shedding below:

@CityPowerlesJhb said:

"Winter is here. This is a cruel punishment. What did we do to deserve this?"

@nkumane said:

"Courtesy of Eskom. How far low can we go? Announcing load shedding is taking incompetence to the highest level. Black people cannot run their own country - everything is falling apart. One day a sewer system will stop working and poop shedding will begin."

Briefly News previously reported that 1 April is not just the day of pranks and games but also a day full of dismay for South Africans. During a time where the country is in a terrible financial position, Eskom's excessive tariff hikes have been implemented.

South Africans who receive electricity directly from the embattled power utility will be charged over 15.6% more than before. The High Court recently ruled that Eskom may raise an extra R10 billion for their revenue of the current year.
