JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – South Africa’s struggling state power utility Eskom said on Friday it would cut up to 4,000 megawatts (MW) of power from the national grid on a rotational basis from 2 p.m.
The utility had earlier said electricity shortages could worsen due to persistent rains which are causing coal-handling problems.
