Deferred generator maintenance has caused an overload of unplanned repairs, resulting in a week of darkness for South Africa. South Africans have had to spend 26% of their year so far planning for another day without electricity

Eskom said it would like to assure customers that load shedding is implemented as a necessary measure to protect the power system.
