South Africans living in the dark turned to social media this week to share their survival tips, as well as their nightmare visions of intensified stages of loadshedding.
South Africa has entered its seventh consecutive day of stage 4 loadshedding on Wednesday, with up to 20% of the country left without electricity at a time.
Eskom confirmed on Tuesday that loadshedding stages 5 to 8 are on the cards as a “contingency measure” to avoid a national blackout.
