South Africa’s Eskom says power cuts to resume on Thursday

JOHANNESBURG, May 12 (Reuters) – South Africa’s power utility Eskom will again implement rotational power cuts from 1500 GMT to 2000 GMT on Thursday, as it struggles with breakdowns at its generating units.

Eskom said in a statement the outages will be under “Stage 2”, which requires up to 2,000 megawatts to be cut from the national grid. (Reporting by Olivia Kumwenda-Mtambo Editing by Tim Cocks)
