Eskom brought news this morning that load-shedding is still going to be around till the night of the sixth day.
South Africans will have to endure stage two load shedding from 10 in the morning on Wednesday until at least Friday evening
Eskom said that it had to cut power again in response to greater breakdowns at its Arnot and Majuba power stations.
The utility said that it had used emergency generation reserves extensively over the past few days while trying to keep the lights on during the day.

Now, it said that teams were working to replenish reserves and return generation units to service.
In time being, it was pleading with South African citizens to reduce their electricity usage in the midst of the current cold front.
Many took to social streets to voice out their opinions on how this extension and being load-shed is affecting their everyday lives and businesses.
Will Eskom ever recover from this? Will load-shedding still be a thing in the next coming years?
