Load shedding: No new schedules

2008-04-15 00:00

THERE will be no new load-shedding schedule until the end of June when the current schedule will be reviewed. This is the official word from Msunduzi Municipality strategic executive manager, Philemon Mashoko, dispelling rumours that there might be another load-shedding schedule on the cards for Pietermaritzburg.

Despite recent complaints from residents who are unclear about the areas and times for load shedding, Mashoko said that the number of complaints have decreased, giving an indication that people are learning to live with load shedding.

“Even people who were initially unclear about which times they were due for load shedding now know from experience where they fall in terms of the schedule.”

He said the municipality is currently working on a map with clear definitions of which areas are being affected by load shedding.
