Eskom announced Stage 4 Load Shedding for this morning. You would have seen this from the traffic this morning if you are around Johannesburg.
The general public was frustrated this morning when they could not access the website to check the Load Shedding schedule in their areas.

Seems as if they not only have problems keeping the lights on – they can't keep a website running either. Useless pic.twitter.com/rETWZrwOok
Eskom announced in a statement on Twitter that their systems are currently down and their IT department is working on the problem.

We regret that Eskom's systems are currently down and customers are unable to access schedules. Our IT dept is working on the problem and we hope to be back online as soon as possible. We apologise for this inconvenience.
It is not clear what has caused this problem at the moment.
