JOHANNESBURG - Eskom is implementing Stage 2 load-shedding from midday Thursday, until Sunday night.
The utility says two generation units at the Kusile Power Station tripped and a unit each at the Kriel and Duvha stations tripped due to unforeseen breakdowns.
Eskom has urged the public to reduce electricity consumption to help minimize load-shedding.
