The utility said in a statement that electricity cuts would be lowered from the current Stage 5 to Stage 4 on Saturday morning at 5am, until 5am on Sunday. They will then be lowered to Stage 3 until 5am on Monday.

"The capacity constraints will persist throughout next week, and current indications are that load shedding will be implemented at Stage 3 for most of the week," Eskom said.
