South African have had to endure rolling blackouts since last during cold spells.

Eskom has warned that the likelihood of load shedding remains high for this week as the national power grid remains vulnerable.

The utility has cited the loss of two generation units at the Kusile, Kendal and Tutuka power stations.

The utility's spokesperson Sikonathi Mantshantsha said its power system remained constraints and urged the nation to reduce the use of electricity.
