Eskom absolute liars, Stage 5 already implemented: Energy expert

Eskom absolute liars, Stage 5 already implemented: Energy expert

During the media briefing that was held on Tuesday, March 19 on Eskom loadshedding a question was asked, "what will happen beyond stage 4 load shedding?"

The statement is in response to a number of messages circulating on Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp warning South Africans that a complete grid collapse and national blackout are imminent.

Stage 5 and Stage 6 load shedding imply shedding 5000 MW and 6000 MW respectively.

Public Enterprise Minister Pravin Gordhan says South Africa's power systems are battling to keep up with demand.

Eskom is now implementing Stage 2 rotatianonal loadshedding.

Facebook and YouTube Remove Footage of New Zealand Mosque Terror Attacks
One of the gunmen live-streamed the attack on Facebook and identified himself as an Australian called Brenton Tarrant. Officials are now criticizing the tech giants once again for reacting too slowly to harmful content.

"I know the most important issue for South Africans is how long will this last and when will you be able to give us certainty that load shedding will end".

Eskom supplies more than 90 percent of the power in Africa's most industrialised economy but has suffered repeated faults at its coal-fired power station fleet, low water levels at hydro-power plants and diesel shortages.

The new Eskom management and board is now trying to undo this web by decentralising control, ensuring that people with the right skills and experience is deployed to power stations and that those managers receive the necessary support to effect change.

Homes and businesses have literally been drained of power as stage four loadshedding hit hard this week, with up to three power cuts daily across the country.
