Evolving Power Cuts This Weekend

  • Friday Escalation: Starting 5 January at 16:00, Eskom moves from stage 2 to stage 3 load-shedding, continuing until early Saturday.
  • Saturday Adjustments: Stage 1 load-shedding dominates most of Saturday, switching to stage 2 from 16:00 through early Sunday.

Sunday Break and Resumption

  • Temporary Relief: Load-shedding halts for 11 hours on Sunday, beginning at 05:00.
  • Evening Return: Stage 1 load-shedding resumes from 16:00 Sunday into Monday morning.

Behind the Shifts
