Load Shedding Is Still Trending
On Sunday many South Africans were outraged due to a surprise power cut that took place. This power cut/ load shedding was a direct result of a silo collapsing at Majuba power station on Saturday, impacting coal supplies to six units. Although Eskom have stated that load shedding will not take place today, they have warned that load shedding may take place on Wednesday and Thursday. According to Memeburn, yesterday saw over 25 000 mentions of load shedding, Eskom and Electricity across the various social media platforms.
