Load-shedding downgraded to stage 2
Just a day after plunging SA into stage 6 rolling blackouts, Eskom announced on Tuesday night that load-shedding had been downgraded to stage 2.
From 6pm on Monday, stage 6 was implemented, with the unprecedented load-shedding lasting until 11pm. From then until 8pm on Tuesday, stage 4 was in place.
However, at around 8pm, this was downgraded to stage 3 - and then an hour later it was downgraded again, this time to stage 2.
No reasons were immediately provided for the changes.
