On Friday, stage 3 power cuts started at 5am and will conclude at 12pm.

“It is anticipated that stage 2 load shedding will also be implemented during the evening peak of 4pm- 10pm throughout next week,” Eskom said in a brief statement on Friday.   

Eskom said the stage of load shedding for the rest of the period will be dependent on returning generating units to service and will be confirmed closer to the time.
