Nationwide Blackouts as South Africa’s Electricity Grid Collapses

Twenty Six Years After the Fall of Apartheid and Implementation of Black Rule, South Africa Experiencing Nationwide Blackouts as Electricity Grid Collapses

Twenty six years after the fall of Apartheid in South Africa and the implementation of black rule (a nation truly proving democracy is nothing more than a racial headcount), we get the consequences of a people rejecting whites and mistakenly believing they can maintain the civilization and infrastructure they have inherited. [Eskom tells municipalities to prepare for stage 8 load-shedding,, January 13, 2020]:
Eskom was forced to implement stage 6 load shedding in December – its worst-ever blackout – sending the country into a panic as not many people were aware of what that stage actually meant for them.
Municipalities too were caught off-guard, with Johannesburg electricity distributor City Power saying at the time that it had no load-shedding schedule for Stage 6.
The year is 2020, and generation and maintenance challenges continue to mount at the state company which generates 96% of South Africa’s electricity.
As a result, all municipalities have been advised to adjust their load shedding schedule up to stage 8, the Buffalo City Municipality said in a statement on Saturday (11 January).
With each stage representing a curtailment of 5% of the national load, stage 8 will equate to 40% of the load being shed, the municipality said.
Under the previous load shedding schedule, four stages were implemented with between 1,000 MW and 4,000 MW of the national load shed – with ‘stage 4’ being the worst possible outcome for South African consumers.
Stage 4 will typically result in consumers being without power for a total of 24 hours spread out over four days, or a total of 48 hours over eight days.
However, Eskom has since revised its schedule to include up to eight different stages, and as much as 8,000 MW shed from the national grid.
During stage 8 load shedding, consumers could be without power for 48 hours over four days, or 96 hours in eight days.

Prepare for the worst

As municipalities prepare for the logistics of stage 8 load shedding, an energy expert warned that South Africans should prepare for the worst – regular stage 6 load-shedding, and 10-hour daily blackouts.
EE Business Intelligence MD Chris Yelland said Eskom’s declining energy availability factor (EAF) is a cause for serious concern.
The energy availability factor shows the percentage of Eskom’s generation capacity which is available, taking into account planned maintenance and unplanned breakdowns.
Yelland said the EAF data for 2019 paints a grim picture of ageing, under-maintained, and stressed power plants.
“The EAF for the full 2019 calendar year has hit a new record low of 67%, compared to the EAF of 72% for the 2018 calendar year,” said Yelland.
He added that the EAF for week 50 and week 51 of 2019 also hit record all-time lows of 59.7% and 58.0% respectively.
Citing an ageing fleet that requires higher levels of maintenance, Eskom has warned that the power system remains vulnerable and volatile, adding that getting back to stability will take some time.
One score and less than a decade after the implementation of black-rule in South Africa, the nation is advancing toward de-electrification.
What a way to prepare to kick off Black History Month in the USA with such… electric news!
Wakanda, as we all know, isn’t real. Neither can western civilization or the advancements in technology by whites in South Africa be either maintained or even kept alive by a nation powered by the mandate of black economic empowerment (BEE).
 Remember, democracy is just a racial headcount, and though white people built South Africa (a nation once boasting nuclear weapons and the first open heart surgery), the now black-run nation is fueled by the black economic empowerment, which mandates affirmative action on behalf of the nearly 91 percent black residents of the nation.
Discrimination to benefit the majority, at the expense of the white majority… and the nation’s electrical grid.

  1. What’s funny is that you’re pushing Black rules South Africa. 🤣 Fact is, saltines didn’t bother to REINVEST in the infrastructure, when THEY were running things.

    Best better invest in matches and candles.

  2. Like Cape Town running out of water by design? Massive population increase and no planning. The CIA runs South Africa. It is a strategically important location & was Africa’s richest country before Lybia got sacked. The US, UK, and Israel have a plan to degrade as many countries as possible. Many years ago a chap appeared on a BBC Radio 4 evening show. He wasn’t a civil servant and he wasn’t a corporate either, but he was in the UK government mix and he was based in various African locations. He was also retired. He said MI6 and the Foreign Office ran a massive pro corruption policy wherever they could and they did this to hold Africa back.

  3. canada is next

  4. Australia is a totally manipulated nation, just like Canada. Debt rigged, brainwashed, and drowning in China ticky tacky to the extent that the people feel alienated, fragmented, like they hardly exist, and they are at best only visitors in their own nation.

  5. Be prepared fellow South Africans we are about to return to peasantry.

    All government owned companies are in the process of total collapse.
    Not only the electricity company.

    S.A. Airways collapsed years ago but is being propped up with our money. the same with the railways company and others.
    Municipalities are toppling left and right, bankrupt.

    Where I live the Municipality has not upgraded the water supply dam in many, many
    years and watering the garden with hose pipes has been banned.

    We are the frogs in the heating water.

  6. This is after decades of British Judah monarchy,together with the their associates: the counterfeit “Jews”, and their secret services and business interests, and paid lackeys, having systematically raped South Africa, and demonised the locals to do so: first the whites, and now the blacks; aiding and abetting the demonisations of both behind the scenes – all for wealth and power!

    11. The second secret requisite for the success of our (behind the scenes) government is comprised in the following: To multiply to such an extent; national failings; habits; passions; conditions of civil life; that it will be impossible for anyone to know where he is in the resulting chaos, so that the people in consequence will fail to understand one another. This measure will also serve us in another way, namely, to sow discord in all parties, to dislocate all collective forces which are still unwilling to submit to us, and to discourage any kind of personal initiative which might in any degree hinder our affair.

  7. Watch the Trunews broadcast from Davos of this last wednesday – and the rest, but this Wednesday’s broadcast is very alrming because it seems that Russia is entirely under the influence of the Chabad Lubavitch – there is a long and revealing interview with “Putin;s Rabbi.”

  8. South Africa has always been a target of the jews and their minions. Started with the Jameson invasion of the old Transvaal Republic. Which led to the first and second Boer wars. This led to the union of South Africa a british crown colony. All revenue raised by the mining industry went back to London. Very little went into infrastucture development. That all changed in 1948 when the NP took political control. Suddenly roads dams hospitals etc were built. At this time companies like Anglo America and De Beers actively started working to get rid of the government of this country. The data is online on how much money went into development of not only infrastructure for whites but also for the blacks. This never made the press. Then in 1994 it all changed again. The plunder started again and hey here we are in 2020. Nothing works with no end in sight. BUT that is what the west wanted. In their defense I will say that brainwashing is a ugly thing.

  9. Fred B is right about Australia but I feel that Australians don’t want to be awakened from their slumber to be confronted with reallity.
