With Loadshedding stage 6 announced today, nobody seems to have the schedule for us to view and we are still not sure when to get the candles out.

Eskom will be moving to stage 6 load shedding as from 6pm, it announced on Monday evening.
“We regret and sincerely apologise that stage 4 loadshedding will move to Stage 6 loadshedding as from 18:00 today, as a result of a shortage of capacity. This follows a technical problem at Medupi Power Station impacting additional generation supply,” it tweeted.
To date, load shedding has been implemented up to stage 4.
The announcement sent shock waves across social media, with “Stage 6” trending within a matter of minutes.
Eskom directed consumers to view schedules online and the City of Cape Town tweeted an updated load shedding schedule. At approximately 18:00, however, multiple municipal websites crashed, including the City of Cape Town, the City of Tshwane and the City of Johannesburg.
