The Kiffness have just released a hilarious song and social media video, featuring Eskom and the current (it’s back again) Loadshedding.
Cape Town, South Africa – What do you get when you mix Loadhsedding and The Kiffness together? A brand new hilarious viral song called “Without Me” which is racking up views while you read this!
David Scott from The Kiffness is no stranger to controversy; he has had public fights with Woolworths over body shaming, taken on festivals that don’t pay and now the singer is singing about Loadshedding!
Watch the hilarious video below:
Meanwhile, Eskom says it has had another major setback at its Medupi Power Station based near Lephalale in Limpopo and will be implementing Stage 1 load shedding from 9 am to 12 pm midday and after that revert to Stage 2 load shedding until 11 pm.
While last night Eskom Acting Group Chief Executive Officer Jabu Mabuza said the power utility would only implement Stage 1 rotational load shedding as a result of a shortage capacity due to several generating units still out of services due to breakdowns, Eskom said overnight it lost additional capacity from the Medupi power station.
“Late last night, we lost Medupi 3, 4 and 5 due to coal and ash handling issues. This is in addition to the conveyer belt that failed on Saturday at the power station. This means that the power system has deteriorated further creating an additional shortage of about generation capacity of 1 500MW,” said Eskom in a statement on Friday morning.
It said, as a result, it would regrettably maintain Stage 2 load shedding for the greater part of Friday.
To lessen the disruption on matrics who are writing their Visual Art and Design practical exam today, Eskom said it would implement Stage 1 load shedding from 9 am until 12 pm and after that revert to Stage 2 load shedding until 11 pm.
“We understand the negative impact this will have on our customers, in particular, our matriculants who are writing exams this morning … We apologise unreservedly to our customers and South Africans for the short notification.”
The utility said it would keep South Africans informed about the status and recovery efforts throughout this period.
