Eskom has announced a slight reduction in rolling blackouts. The power utility says Stage 4 will be implemented at 05:00 to 16:00 on Tuesday followed by Stage 5 from 16:00 on Wednesday.

Eskom is currently rolling out Stage 6 power blackouts.

Earlier on Monday Eskom postponed its media briefing scheduled for the afternoon because of an emergency engagement with President Cyril Ramaphosa who cancelled his trip to the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland.

Meanwhile, a report released by Allianz Risk Barometer has identified electricity constraints as the biggest risk to South Africa’s economy for 2023.
