'Collective effort' needed to reduce chance of load shedding says Eskom

Eskom reports that there has been some progress in required diesel replenishment levels and water level improvement.

However, it cautions that load shedding at short notice could result if there are any "unexpected" shifts such as additional unplanned breakdowns in the system.

Eskom implemented stage 2 load shedding on Thursday into Friday after it lost three generating units.
