    They said on the news its just part of business, and that it doesn't imply load-shedding

    Its just a schedule IF there has to be load shedding. Spokesman for city power said that if the need arises for load shedding, then it will be as per schedule. So its not a guarantee that theres gonna be load shedding..

    Yup. Some parts of Edenvale and Lambton are out. To make matters worse my Telkom line has been down since 5 December. It was previously down for three weeks in November. I got a increased telkom bill at the end of November because they had given my line to a business.

    The service providers totally suck. The guys at the top need a good old fashioned kick up the back side.
