DA says Eskom is keeping SA in the dark about looming load shedding

Is load shedding on the cards again? DA MP Natasha Mazzone has called on Eskom to be transparent about the possible blackouts.

UPDATE: Eskom pulls the plug on load shedding rumours

The Democratic Alliance (DA) claims that Eskom has been discreetly warning municipalities to brace themselves for load shedding.

In a statement on Thursday, the DA said it had received “reliable information” that load shedding could return from the end of September and throughout October.

DA MP Natasha Mazzone has called on Eskom chairperson Jabu Mabuza to be transparent about the likelihood of rolling blackouts.

Mazzone, the DA's shadow minister of public enterprises, says it's unacceptable that Mabuza recently told Parliament to "pray for good luck" so that Eskom can keep the lights on.

I've been told by reliable sources that Eskom's officials are warning municipalities that there us a possibility of load shedding.

I am terribly concerned about the possibility of load shedding once again.

Mazzone says load shedding has far-reaching consequences and is "catastrophic" for South Africa's economy.

She's written to Mabuza and awaits his response.
