In a statement, the power utility says this is due to further breakdowns in some of its power plants and the delay in generating units.

“Due to further breakdowns and delays in the return of generating units to service, stage six load shedding will be implemented from 12pm,” says Eskom spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha.

Meanwhile, City Power is warning Johannesburg residents to expect longer power outages due to bad weather conditions that are expected to continue in the coming days.

City Power spokesperson Isaac Mangena says they are seeing a spike in outages in parts of Johannesburg because of the hailstorm reported on Monday.

“Heavy storms have damaged some electricity infrastructure, uprooted the poles, flooded transformer chambers, uprooted trees which fell on electricity lines and even the overhead cables. We are forced to navigate through the flooded streets of Johannesburg,” says Mangena.

The affected areas include Hursthill, Lenasia, Randburg and parts of Roodepoort.
