Eskom announces stage 4 load-shedding

Eskom first implemented stage 2 load-shedding on Sunday.

Eskom announced on Tuesday morning that stage 4 load-shedding would be implemented from 07:20.

The power utility said it was forced to implement a higher stage of load-shedding after units at both Majuba and Tutuka power stations had tripped.

Eskom said its group chief executive, André de Ruyter, would hold a media briefing on Tuesday morning in which the power utility’s management team will provide an update on the challenges it was experiencing.

Load-shedding was first implemented over the Easter weekend on Sunday.
