Whatapp News

JOHANNESBURG – South Africa’s state power firm Eskom said on Thursday it would cut 1,000 megawatts of electricity from the national grid from 0900 GMT, likely until 2100 GMT, because of a shortage of generating capacity.

Eskom is struggling to emerge from a severe financial crisis and has suffered a series of unplanned breakdowns at its creaking coal-fired power station fleet, which limit its ability to power Africa’s most industrialised economy.(Reuters)
