Eskom has announced that Stage 2 rotational load shedding will be implemented from 9 am on Thursday until 6 am on Saturday.
The power utility has also said that there is a high probability that load shedding will continue over the weekend.
Stage 2 load shedding will be implemented due to the loss of three additional units overnight that has increased the shortage in capacity, Eskom said in a statement on Thursday morning.
