Energy expert Sampson Mamphweli says the current situation of escalating loadshedding is not surprising as some power stations are very unstable.
Mamphweli says the entire coal fleet at Eskom power stations is problematic.
He also indicated that the new power stations are not performing as they should.
South Africans can brace themselves for stage 4 loadshedding implemented between 17:00 – 22:00 and thereafter downgraded to stage 2.
Mamphweli says ageing infrastructure has also been a huge contributing factor.
