Stage 2 loadshedding is planned for the 16th and 17th of March, and perhaps even later. Eskom has announced that power cuts are scheduled for the whole weekend.

This is because of a shortage of generation capacity thanks to plant breakdowns, as reported on by eNCA.

Eskom will continue to implement Stage 2 load shedding until Sunday, 17 March 2019, as a result of a shortage of generation capacity due to plant breakdowns and the need to manage our diesel and water resources.
