Stage 3 loadshedding has rocked the nation but this is how to survive it

Stage 22 Load Shedding: Derek Watts is arrested because his surname promotes electricity.


Hartebeesport, South Africa – The Owl Rescue Centre have made everyone’s day brighter with their recent Load Shedding post.

The Rescue Centre is a registered Non-profit company and permitted rehabilitation facility concerned with the well-being of all owl species in Southern Africa.

Owl Rescue Centre is dedicated to protecting owls, rescue owls that are in danger and rehabilitate and care for owls that are injured, sick, poisoned or orphaned and then release them back into their natural environment using specific researched release methods.

They rehabilitate and release over 250 Spotted Eagle Owls, 150 Barn Owls and 100 other owl species each year. Apart from rescuing and rehabilitating owls, they spend a large sum of their time educating individuals on owls and the harm caused by pesticides.

This is what they posted:

“Stage 10 Load Shedding: Eskom comes to your house and blows your candles out

Stage 22 Load Shedding: Derek Watts is arrested because his surname promotes electricity.

Stage 25 Load Shedding: Eskom only allows dark humour.

Stage 100 Load Shedding: Eskom comes to your house and glues your eyes permanently shut, so you never see again”

They also asked their followers if anyone else had “funny ones” to add? And this was the response:

Henriett Schnetler posted: “Stage 12 – Eskom takes your Castle light and gives you a Savanna dark.”

Cassandra Yatt added: “Load shedding 101 – Eskom encourages the public to increase carrot intake to improve eyesight in the dark.”

Dianne Hildyard commented: “Stage 12: Eskom removes the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Maritz Heystek posted: “Stage 25 – hide the Sunlight soap. ESKOM is coming for you.”

Lien’s Palette said: “Stage 97: Eskom takes away the pregnancy glow.”

Sam Brown posted: “Stage 13 Stalk the lantern replaces rugby as national pastime.”

Linda Surgey Kerford said: “South Africans have a unique ability to laugh at the worst of situations. It is what get us through all our challenges.”

Telicia Nair Sobashnee Govender replied: “I was going to say something about Eskom but I don’t have the energy.”
