"Eskom is a joke": South Africans are not happy with Eskom's Stage 8 loadshedding warning

Earlier, Briefly News reported that South Africans should start bracing themselves for more rolling blackouts in the near future, Eskom has warned.

The state-owned power utility said more loadshedding can be expected because electricity generation could be compromised now that the environment department has denied Eskom's application to pollute more than the legal requirement.

BusinessInsider reports that Eskom is one of the worst polluters in the world, and the power utility says it cannot be in compliance with the law as well as keep the lights of South Africans on at the same time.
