- On Wednesday, news broke that Eskom began implementing stage two load-shedding
- The country-wide power outages are said to be the result of a "shortage of capacity"
- South Africans were not happy about the news and they dragged both Eskom and the 'New Dawn' government
It was a good week so far and then boom, Eskom hit us with stage two load-shedding on Wednesday.
In a statement, Eskom warned South Africans of possible stage two load-shedding from 9am to 11pm today.
According to the electricity utility, the load-shedding is due to a "shortage of capacity", Fin24 reported.
Eskom warned that the load-shedding could last an entire week and South Africans should make proper preparations.
Briefly.co.za gathered South Africans were not at all happy about the news and they quickly dragged the ANC government and power supplier for leaving the country in the dark, yet again.
Social media user, @uNdlunkulu_Xoli, commented:
"It’s Pravin Gordhan’s fault. Everywhere that man goes, he destroys but 'Thuma Minions' aren’t ready to address that fact now. We all have to suffer because of their love for Pravin haibo #Loadshedding."
James Styan, who goes by the Twitter handle @jamesstyan, added:
"Matrics are writing exams today. Computer Science I believe. And now #eskom drops a #loadshedding stage two bomb on the country with zero notice."
