Thuli Phongolo echoed the country’s frustrations when she took to the timeline to vent about the latest round of load shedding. It hasn’t been easy for anybody, even the famous among us!

Nandi Madida

Raising two kids is hard enough. Raising two kids without electricity is a nightmare, just ask Nandi Madida who was beyond fedup with Eskom’s conduct.

Bonang Matheba

Bonang raised a valid point; how could we welcome our brand new Miss Universe with open arms if we can’t even light up the runway for her because of load shedding?

How embarrassing!
