Community Protest at Tumahole Eskom Substation Over Loadshedding Issue


Johannesburg, South Africa — Eskom announced early this morning that Stage 4 loadshedding has been thrust upon South Africa as of 4am today, enduring until further notice. The drastic measure follows the unexpected loss of five generating units at Kendal Power Station along with a single unit at Duvha Power Station, aggravating the already precarious energy situation in the country.

The prolonged duration of the heightened loadshedding stage has not been determined, according to the power utility, which has left many residents and businesses scrambling to adjust to the increased power cuts. The affected power stations, which form a crucial part of the nation’s power generation infrastructure, have exacerbated an ongoing crisis that has seen frequent loadshedding in recent months.

In a statement released to the press, an Eskom spokesperson conveyed the severity of the situation: “Due to the loss of five generating units at Kendal Power Station and a generating unit at Duvha Power Station, Stage 4 loadshedding has been implemented at 4am today until further notice.”

The power utility has assured the public that their technicians are working tirelessly to return the lost units to service, and efforts are being made to mitigate the impact on the electricity grid. The interruption to regular power supply has raised concerns about the continued reliability of the aging infrastructure and the economic implications of such extensive and long-term outages.

Eskom has reiterated its commitment to keeping the public informed, stating: “ We will closely monitor the power system and communicate should any significant changes occur.”
