The power utility has warned that the situation for the rest of this week continues to look bleak.
After Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe warned in a tweet that Stage 2 load shedding would most likely be implemented yet again today, he confirmed it would start at 9am in a televised interview with eNCA on Monday morning.
He said a number of power-generating units were still out of service due to breakdowns and that load shedding was on the cards for 13 hours, from 9am to 10pm.
ALERT: With a number of power generating units still out of service due to breakdowns, the prognosis for today is that Eskom will be forced to implement stage 2 loadshedding from 09:00 to 22:00 again.

He had earlier tweeted that the situation for the entire week continues to look bad and that it was going to take a lot of hard work and money to get the power grid stable again.
Looking bad for Monday?
