JOHANNESBURG - Eskom has announced that it will be implementing stage 2 power cuts from 5 pm to 10 pm on Saturday.
Eskom says this is due to further loss in generating capacity.
There are two 389 MW stations on maintenance while 17 810 MW station is down due to breakdowns.
The power utility has warned if capacity is not increased, the blackouts will be repeated at the same time, throughout the week.
