Eskom denies imminent grid collapse

Eskom denies claims of an imminent collapse of the national electricity grid.

JOHANNESBURG - Eskom has categorically denied that the national electricity grid faces imminent collapse.

Eskom says it's concerned over social media posts, claiming that the country will soon experience a blackout or collapse of the national electricity grid.

It has now moved to assure South Africans that there are measures in place to avoid the collapse of the power system.

These include blackouts, with Stage 6 power cuts remaining in effect indefinitely.

It says there's a very low risk of a national blackout.

More details on the status of the power system will be shared at a media briefing on Thursday.
