JOHANNESBURG - Brace yourself for even more darkness.
Eskom is implementing Stage 4 power cuts indefinitely.
It says this is due to delays in the supply of diesel.
A vessel carrying the fuel has not been able to berth in Mossel Bay due to rough seas.
Eskom says it will have to preserve low diesel levels at Gourikwa.
Delivery to Ankerlig will take time as it is done by road tankers.
Stage 4 will be maintained untill diesel supply resumes to the two Open Cycle Gas Turbines.

Loadshedding will unfortunately remain implemented at Stage 4 throughout the night and continue until diesel stocks have been fully replenished.
The vessel that is supposed to offload diesel at Mossel Bay cannot berth due to rough seas.
