While Eskom's teams have managed to return some of its ten broken-down generating units to service, there is no guarantee that load shedding will not continue beyond Tuesday.

The power utility on Sunday evening implemented stage 2 load shedding after ten of its generating units broke down. Losses were reported at Tutuka power station, Majuba, Kriel, Matla, Kusile, Medupi and the Duvha power stations. By Tuesday morning, seven units were returned to service and load shedding was temporarily suspended - until Tuesday evening from 17:00 to 22:00.
