South Africa power cuts affect millions

Frequent electricity blackouts could affect how millions vote in upcoming general election in May.

    For the first time in six years, the South African government has introduced electricity blackouts due to energy shortage.

    The government says the cuts are temporary and people should use alternative sources of energy.

    With general election coming up in May, the power cuts could affect how people vote.
