South Africa may be suffering a historic electricity crunch, but you won't know it from driving through the country's brightly lit office districts at night.
At many massive corporate buildings, intense overhead lighting shines on all office floors, long after workers have gone home. The buildings' multi-storey car parks also remain blazing at night when there are no vehicles in the lot.
In mid-September, at the start of the current record load shedding stretch, Eskom CEO André de Ruyter called on companies and office landlords to switch off their lights at night to save electricity. But it's clear many have not heeded that call.
