Eskom's timing has to be the worst ever. The power utility announced load shedding at the same time as the Global Citizen festival, and Mzansi is worried they'll be embarrassed in front of iconic celeb Beyoncé Knowles.
While we all kind of expected Eskom to implement load shedding this summer, we are all hoping it won't happen while Beyoncé and other celebs are in the country.
It doesn't really make sense for load shedding to happen during the summer because the strain should be less, but when was the last time Eskom made sense?
However, South Africa is worried about being embarrassed by the load shedding during the Global Citizen festival, which brings stars like Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Ed Sheeran and Chris Martin of Coldplay to SA.
The festival takes place at FNB stadium on Sunday the 2nd of December, and Mzansi is super excited.
As reported on by The Citizen, South Africans took to social media to beg Eskom to not embarrass them:
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Beyoncé and her whole family landed at Lanseria Airport on Thursday, 29 November.
