Eskom is making progress to restore power in Karoo after weather-related outage

# Eskom says it is diligently working to restore electricity supply in parts of the Karoo caused by severe weather conditions last Saturday. The outage is expected to be resolved by next Thursday. Several areas, including Sutherland, Roggeveld, and Ladismith remain without power. Eskom’s major engineering teams from the Western and Eastern Cape are on-site, working around the clock to reconstruct damaged infrastructure caused by gale-force winds and heavy rain. Eskom apologizes for the inconvenience and expresses gratitude for the affected customers’ patience.
