The power utility implemented stage 5 load-shedding on Wednesday morning due to high demand.

Eskom’s interim spokesperson Daphne Mokwena said:  “Due to higher than expected demand, stage 5 load-shedding continued from 5am until further notice. Eskom will provide an update later this afternoon [Wednesday],” she said.
