The IFP in Parliament says if Eskom Acting CEO and board Chairperson Jabu Mabuza is not winning the battle to resolve the crisis at the power utility – he should step down.
Eskom says it will reinstate stage two load shedding from midday to 23:00 on Friday. It says it will start with stage one at 09:00 and switch to stage two at midday.
Eskom says it will be implementing Stage one load shedding from nine o’ clock tomorrow morning to eleven o’ clock tomorrow night but doesn’t expect further loadshedding for the rest of the weekend.
Eskom says stage two load shedding will continue on Thursday, adding that the return of load shedding is due to high levels of unplanned breakdowns and could continue for the rest of the week.
The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) has called for the immediate axing of the entire Eskom board and its senior management because it says they have failed to fix the power utility after two years at the helm.
