Thememorial service was held on March 18. At the time, Eskom was implementing rolling blackouts at level two of its load-shedding schedule across the country.According to Gordhan, the government made a request a day before the memorial service for Eskom to consider suspending load-shedding for a duration of four hours between 10am and 2pm.
