The Daily Maverick's Sikonathi Mantshantsha says DA MP Natasha Mazzone was evidently right about load shedding speculation last month.
At the time, Mazzone said she had received “reliable information” that load shedding would return from the end of September and throughout October.
Eskom denied the claims that load shedding would make a comeback.
Now here we are, greeted by darkness once again, Mantshantsha remarks.
Meanwhile, Mineral Resources and Energy Minister Gwede Mantashe told Mantshantsha that the situation has not yet reached a crisis point.
Mantashe was briefing the media on the government's new energy mixed, known as the Integrated Resource Plan.
