Johannesburg City Power unclear about Stage 6

REPORTER: MATSHEBA MALATJI

Johannesburg’s City Power says the implementation of Stage 6 load shedding by Eskom is placing more pressure on already stressed electricity infrastructure and could lead to more power crisis in the city. Eskom has implemented Stage 6 load shedding until 22:00 on from Tuesday evening of the 28 June 2022. Eskom has blamed the implementation of Stage 6 to the unprotected workers’ strike. City Power says Stage 6 means that households will go for up to about 6 hours without power in three phases every 24 hours.
