Eskom CEO: Load shedding to be suspended at 9pm on Friday

Eskom CEO Andre de Ruyter says no power cuts are expected this weekend.

The utility says Stage 1 power cuts will continue until 9 pm on Friday.

De Ruyter revealed that the Hawks are now investigating an alleged act of sabotage at Lethabo Power Station near Vereeniging.

A pylon tower collapsed onto a distribution line there this week.

De Ruyter says it’s clear some thick steel rods were cut and he calls it “deliberate sabotage” because nothing was stolen.

He said this could have cut power to coal conveyor belts, which in turn shut down a major unit in the country’s grid.
