All powerless South Africans can do now, is check their load-shedding schedules and brace themselves.

Consumers are urged to check their load-shedding schedules on the municipal or Eskom websites.

The schedule can be found at http://loadshedding.eskom.co.za or by calling Eskom's customer contact centre at 0860 037 566.
