Eskom says just one of the seven power generators that went offline yesterday has yet to be connected back to the grid - as the country endures stage three loadshedding. The power utility says it hopes to make substantial progress
towards stabilising the grid by the end of this week. South Africans were left in the dark yesterday as Eskom introduced stage four loadshedding for the first time in more than ten years. Economists warn that loadshedding poses a major risk to an already fragile economy. President Cyril Ramaphosa yesterday expressed anger at the loadshedding. His Public Enterprises Miniser, Pravin Gordhan, held lengthy meetings with Eskom's Board - which said it was addressing a number of issues including the
poor performance on the new power plants - Kusile and Medupi.
