Eskom the Power Supplier of South Africa is still suffering major outages on their computer systems, this is having a knock-on effect on customers.
Stage 4 loadshedding is currently active until tomorrow and some customers rely on being able to access the website for schedules in their area.
Eskom today has released a statement apologizing to its customers for the outage that occurred in their data center yesterday morning at 05:00. They have estimated that the fix will be live within the next 48 hour period, most critical systems have been restored.
Faults can now be logged through the call centers but Eskom has stated that the systems are still running slower than normal so expect delays. Their payment system still remains offline, if you require any form of payment then it’s best to avoid this for another 48 hours.
Eskom finished the statement by reassuring that power stations and national controls have not been affected by the computer system outage.
