Andre de Ruyter the Eskom CEO says it’s necessary to warn the public that Stage 6 could be implemented today from 17h00 this afternoon owing in part to a breakdown of power plants and including the unlawful industrial action by our workers. What does stage 6 mean ? It mean that people who are in the affected areas will experience 6 hours of load shedding per day. First, our teams are working very long hours under very difficult conditions to keep capacity online said the CEO De Ruyter.
