Electricity cut-off started at 17:00 around Soweto, the Vaal, Newcastle, Ehlanzeni and Mopani District in Limpopo, and will continue until to 22:00 on Thursday night, as Eskom said it was “battling to keep up with the increased equipment failure caused by overloading that is costing millions to repair.”
The exact areas affected by the load reduction are detailed in a tweet from the power supplier:
