Relaxed power outage for now, the situation could change at any time – Eskom spokesman – SABC News

The public will have a deadline from the 6th level of power outage from Thursday.

Eskom has announced that it has implemented level four, which starts at 5 am this morning until midnight.

This will be reduced to another level on Friday.

On Tuesday, Eskom increased its power outage to level six.

The first and only time South Africa last tolerated this level of power outage was in December 2019.

A spokesman for the electricity company, Sikhonathi Mantshantsha, said the network was limited due to an unprotected strike by Eskom employees: “Eskom continues to monitor the system closely and will implement any changes as needed. Due to the illegal and unprotected workforce, which has caused widespread disruption to Eskom’s power plants, Eskom is unable to return any power stations in use. “

Mantshantsha adds: “This has forced Eskom to continue to take precautionary measures to protect emergency production capacity and to protect the plant from damage. There is still a risk that the level of load shedding may need to change at any time, depending on the condition of the factory. “
