Stage 2: Here's a new "schedule" of loadshedding

Following more decreases in generation capacity, the power utility Eskom has declared that stage 2 load shedding will be introduced today. On Wednesday and Thursday, load shedding is scheduled to take place between the hours of 16:00 and 00:00. "The delay in returning a generation unit to service each at Arnot, Koeberg, and the Kusile power stations, as well as unplanned outages of a generation unit each at Camden, Medupi, and two units each at Grootvlei, Hendrina, and Majuba power stations, has exacerbated the capacity constraints," Eskom said.

The construction company from US that building Kusile power station

As everyone probably knows by now, the plans to build Kusile Power Station were initially conceptualized in 2007, during the time when Thabo Mbeki was still President of the country. Kusile was projected to complete after 5 years which would have been somewhere around 2012. If everything had went according to plan, none of this loadshedding we're seeing today would have been happening but if you have a man with 780 charges to his name leading the nation, no good will happen whatsoever.

OPINION| The ANC should consider bringing back Thabo Mbeki as president

In order for the African National Congress (ANC) to shake off its state of stagnation, the party should seriously consider electing Thabo Mbeki as president once again, and then mortgage its infrastructure capital program to Chinese firms and banks in exchange for a 30-year BOT. The number of people working at Eskom would be reduced by 20,000 thanks to Medupi, and Kusile would be finished in the blink of an eye.
