Eskom CEO Andre De Ruyter said the power utility was working to restore capacity to power stations to mitigate the “very real risk” of Stage 6 load shedding on Tuesday evening. Eskom, News24 reports, said the loss of further capacity overnight at the utility’s operations heightened the risk that stage 6 load shedding would be implemented. The South African power utility’s leadership said obstruction of access to stations by protesting workers escalated to intimidation and the torching of vehicles at various sites.
