The power utility says the rotational power cuts are due to a shortage of generating capacity

Eskom says it will implement stage 1 load shedding from 11:00 to 23:00 on Thursday due to a shortage of generating capacity.

Eskom spokesperson Khulu Phasiwe said the rotational power cuts were being instituted due to plant breakdowns, resulting in an imbalance between electricity supply and demand.

This will be the first time since February 15 that South Africans are going without power due to scheduled load shedding.
