LOAD-SHEDDING: Schedules, info, and how it affects you

The power utility said stepped up load-shedding was due to the shortage of capacity and in order to replenish emergency reserves.

Load-shedding is expected to continue until 5am on Monday morning.

The struggling power utility has asked everyone to use electricity sparingly and to switch off their geysers during peak hours.
