Eskom has announced that stage 2 load shedding will now continue until 6am on Friday.
The power utility implemented stage two blackouts at 9pm on Wednesday night, which was expected to last until 8am, citing a loss to generation capacity.
Eskom said that its emergency reserves were insufficient to meet the demand for electricity during the day.
