On Tuesday, December 4, the national electricity company decided to hold a controlled nationwide rotational power outage, from 09:00 to 22:00 (local time), following breakdowns at power generation plants that disrupted daily activities. The controlled outage is likely to continue until at least Friday, December 7. As such, further disruptions are likely in the coming days. Related protests cannot be ruled out. Updated information concerning load shedding schedules is available here.
Individuals in South Africa are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities, and keep battery-operated devices fully charged whenever possible.
