Power utility Eskom says South Africans can breathe a sigh of relief on Tuesday as no power cuts were expected during the day but things could change in the evening.

"We are not expecting load shedding during the day but we could be constrained in the evening," spokesperson Andrew Etzinger said.

"If it's needed [power cuts], we will endeavour after peak period."

Eskom has been battling to keep the lights on since the collapse of one of its silos in Mpumalanga. The country has experienced regular power cuts with the past weekend having been the worst. Eskom implemented stage three "load shedding".
