Loadshedding is back – South Africans react

Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe announced on Twitter on Thursday that due to the strike action, at least four power stations were severely “constrained” forcing them to implement stage 1  loadshedding at 5pm to 8pm.

This has happened despite the State utility company assuring South Africans earlier this week that contingency plans were put in place to keep the lights on during the strike.

Phasiwe confirmed that the power system was relatively stable this morning, with no load-shedding anticipated for the most part of today. Eskom will continue to provide regular updates about the state of the power system through various media platforms.

Eskom’s Deputy spokesperson Dikatso Mothae also confirmed they had filed court papers for an urgent application to force workers to return to work today.

Here is how people have reacted to the news:
