Eskom says its systems are still constrained but the power utility does not expect to load shed for the rest of the week.
Over the weekend, Eskom implemented stage two load shedding due to a conveyor belt failure at Medupi power station.
Meanwhile, newly appointed CEO André de Ruyter has officially started work.
Clement Manyathela speaks to Eskom spokesperson Dikatso Mothae.
We can confirm that Andre started work today officially but he had been around during the festive season meeting some of the employees and getting to know the business.— Dikatso Mothae, Spokesperson - Eskom
We implemented stage two so we could replenish some of our emergency reserves.— Dikatso Mothae, Spokesperson - Eskom
We don't expect that we will need to load shed over the week but should anything unexpected happen on the system we might have to load shed.— Dikatso Mothae, Spokesperson - Eskom
