Despite promising a return to Stage 2 last night, Eskom has announced that the country will be placed on Stage 3 load shedding for Thursday.
  • Loadshedding will be increased to Stage 3 from 8am until 10pm on Thursday
  • Eskom has been implementing Stage 2 load shedding but scaled it up to Stage 4 on Wednesday
  • Eskom's plan to revert back to Stage 2 hasn't materialised due to further breakdowns
  • South Africans have taken to social media to vent their frustrations about the rolling blackouts

Mzansi is fed up with Eskom's erratic load shedding schedule.

The power utility announced that Stage 3 load shedding will be in place on Thursday between 8am and 10pm.

This comes after Eskom bumped up power cuts from Stage 2 to Stage 4 on Wednesday.

Energy analyst Chris Yelland had yesterday warned that Eskom could not guarantee a return to Stage 2 for the remainder of the week.
