On Monday, the power utility, Eskom, announced it would cut the power up to stage 6. This is the highest stage SA has ever experienced. Eskom said this was due to a “technical problem” at the Medupi power station.
South Africans have taken to Twitter to react to stage 6 of load-shedding implemented by Eskom, and these hilarious reactions will make your day.
Our Queen B expressed that our recently crowned Miss Universe will arrive back home to a blackout.

As much as Mzansi is scorned at the moment, they have managed to make jokes about Mzansi’s current situation.
Actress, Rami Chuene‘s response takes the cup!, the Star said this is the stage when Eskom comes at takes the Jesus out of you.
Stage 6 is when Eskom comes and takes the Jesus out of you. In John 8:12 Jesus says, “I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” Yes, that’s the very same light that’s taken by Stage 6.
