Eyewitness News reporter Bonga Dlulane says Eskom CEO André de Ruyter says the maintenance plan will take up to 18 months.

Eskom CEO André de Ruyter has warned South Africans to expect increased load shedding for the foreseeable future.

This comes in the wake of Eskom announcing Stage 2 load shedding for Friday until 6am on Monday.

Clement Manyathela speaks to Eyewitness News reporter Bonga Dlulane about what else the CEO said in regards to power cuts.

The Eskom CEO told us it is a bad time and they have to do load shedding because if they don't it means there is a risk of complete system failure.

Bonga Dlulane, Reporter - Eyewitness News 

At least now South Africans will know when it happens and will know its controls but they can't give us a clear deadline as yet.

Dlulane says Ruyter says the system needs a complete overhaul.

There is a philosophy maintenance plan that they came up with that will run for 18 months and they want to start in the next three months.
