JOHANNESBURG - Eskom has announced that another full day of load shedding lies ahead across the country for today.

#Eskom regrets to announce that Stage 1 #load_shedding will be implemented from 06:00 until 22:00 today.

Eskom started implementing stage 1 power cuts at 6am this morning and this will continue until 10pm.

On Thursday, the utility blamed multiple trips at its power stations for more frequent cuts, saying generators that it expected to get online this week failed.
