South Africans are once again dealing with interruptions to electricity supply after Eskom announced the move to stage 4 loadshedding.
The University of South Africa (Unisa) has advised its students that their services may not be available due to the interruptions in the power supply.
Unisa said, “Please be aware that with the current load shedding taking place across the country, it is possible that some of our campuses could be affected by power supply disruptions and network connectivity challenges”.
The university has apologised for the inconvenience caused by the power supply disruptions at some of their campuses.
Eskom revealed that Stage 4 loadshedding is expected to continue until 5 AM on Friday. It will then be moved to Stage 2 until 5 AM on Monday.
The power utility explained that Stage 4 loadshedding will allow for the space required to replenish its emergency reserves and manage the system safely.
They said, “Eskom appeals to all South Africans to help us limit the impact of loadshedding by reducing the usage of electricity and to switch off all non-essential items”.
