CEO Andre de Ruyter says the outages are necessary interventions that will deliver long-term benefits.

Meanwhile, theft and vandalism on Eskom's distribution network are becoming increasingly difficult to manage.

That's the word from the utility's Chief Operations Officer Jan Oberholzer, who says the power supply to millions of South Africans is at risk.

Eskom says vandalism cost it R200m in the past year.
