South Africa is currently facing many challenges right now, the high unemployment rate, high prices of petrol and electricity, the increased prices of basic food and necessities.
The cost of living is very high, higher than what anyone could ever have expected. Many people has been struggling to keep up with the prices of basic food and necessities or the cost of living in general.
On top of everything that is happening in the country, there is load shedding in the middle of winter. It is very cold and electricity is under pressure.
Stage 2 and 4 load shedding has been going on for the past few days, the bad news is that Eskom implemented stage 6.
A statement was issued on Tuesday to inform South Africans that stage 6 loadshedding will be implemented at 16:00.
Stage 6 loadshedding will also be implemented tomorrow again.
Load shedding was first implemented in 2008, no one would have anticipated that it would go on for this long.
It looks like, the country is in for a dark and cold winter. We all know that loadshedding will not go away anytime soon.
This load shedding stage 6 was implemented to start right away and without warning, people were not given enough time to prepare themselves.
