    'Too much load shedding in Pakistan' - I'm not quite sure what it refers to; do you mean 'There was too much / a lot of load shedding...' I have changed this to be a full sentence but the original could be used if it was an answer to a question.

    'for two days tomorrow and the day after tomorrow' - for two days: tomorrow and the day after.

    There is no such word exist in British English as load shedding. You can use power cut for this purpose. I think he wants to say today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.
