Loadshedding was officially implemented on 2 January after the country experienced a festive season free of blackouts, and South Africans are mad.
Eskom's abrupt announcement of the return of loadshedding frustrated citizens. The company blamed maintenance issues and high electricity demand for the decision.
Eskom threwthe country into darkness many times in 2023 and this devastated businesses, the economy, township enterprises and people's personal lives.
Eskom announced that Kusile's new Unit 5 is online and has been synchronised to the system and is expected to generate 800MW of electricity to the grid.
Eskom revealed that loadsheding is expected to resume on 5 January after a short break during the second half of the festive season. South Africans have had it.
Eskom's loadshedding will stay away for Christmas. Electricity minister Dr Kgosientsho Ramokgopa confirmed the festive season would be stress-free.
The Minister of Electricity, Dr Kgosientsho Ramokgopa, revealed that there has been no loadshedding recently because of the reduction in demand.
South Africans made fun of a woman from Orange Farm who was caught with R3 million worth of electricity infrastructure which she was going to use privately.
Minister of Electricity, Kgosientsho Ramokgopa expressed optimism about Eskom's future stability under new CEO Dan Marokane who was appointed on Friday.
