I think this is a typo. The article is referring to a power blackout that lasted a few days, and so people had to 'make do' with natural light.
make do : manage with the limited or inadequate means/resources available.
I wonder if this really is a typo, or this journalist has heard this said, and tried to use it. In Britain, we say "do" and "dyew' (due), just like we say 'tyune' (tune) but Americans say 'do' for 'due'; and so the journalist understood the person to say, not 'making do', but 'making due'.
