The impact of load shedding has been a topical issue throughout the course of  this year due to how it has exacerbated the country’s socio economic issues. However, the government says measures are in place to have it resolved by next year.   

South Africans will spend more time in the dark after power utility Eskom announced stage 6 loadshedding will be implemented until further notice. Citizens can expect to be without electricity for up to 10 hours daily.


It has been more than decade since South Africa has been faced with loadshedding. However, government has assured the country that work is being done to put an end to rolling blackouts.


It has been almost two decades since the country has been experiencing the worst loadshedding, both businesses and ordinary citizens are faced with the negative implications that come with the rolling blackouts.


As South Africa continues to grapple with the frustrations and negative impacts brought on by the energy crisis, many are wondering if the country will ever experience stable electricity. Although Eskom has assured the public it is working to resolve the problem, loadshedding only seems to worsen. 

The Western Cape province has high ambitions for the new year by tackling the electricity crisis. The province's government has put in place multiple solutions that can hopefully lessen the strain of the continuous blackouts. 

South Africans experienced more than 200 days of loadshedding in 2022. While 2022 has concluded, the darkness brought upon by rolling blackouts is set to continue into 2023.


South Africa is heading into stage six of loadshedding as the festive season begins. Loadshedding has become a main source of frustration, as continous blackouts and the country's energy crisis seem to have no end.

The return of loadshedding has resulted in a number of issues, impacting the lives of those who rely on Eskom for power supply. The power utility is now hoping to turn things around. 


On Sunday morning, South Africans awoke to the news that Eskom increased Loadshedding to Stage 6. This announcement meant that millions of people will be spending more time in the dark.


The decommissioning of a power station in Mpumalanga could have left workers with nothing. However, the country’s power utility has signed a deal with a Western Cape University to train workers with crucial new skills.


Power cuts have become a common occurrence over the past few months as the demand for energy increases during winter. Eskom has announced that stage two loadshedding will continue.


South Africans will once again have to plan their day based on the availability of electricity as the country’s power utility announced that loadshedding will commence this week.


While it may be in the best interest of South Africa to have a stable supply of electricity, workers' unions have lambasted the plans presented by President Cyril Ramaphosa. They believe that the plans could result in the price of electricity skyrocketing.


South Africans have been subjected to more than 1600 hours of continuous loadshedding so far this year. And while the government has announced plans to end the rolling blackouts, loadshedding will be around for the next 24 months at least. 

More than 960 hours and counting. This is the number of hours of loadshedding that South Africans have been subjected to so far this year. This amounts to 40 days of rolling blackouts.


Eskom's latest announcement means South Africans are in for a dark weekend ahead. Loadshedding will also be escalated to stage 6 at 2 PM on Thursday and will remain in place until Friday morning.


South African power utility Eskom has announced stage 6 loadshedding will commence at 4 PM on Tuesday. Here’s what it means for the country.


South African power utility Eskom have revealed that loadshedding will continue throughout this coming week as the country faces a continued shortage of generation capacity.


Charge your phones, laptops and power banks, Eskom has announced that loadshedding will be implemented for at least the next week.
