File: Eskom is urging consumers to use electricity sparingly.
JOHANNESBURG - Stage 6 blackouts will be reinstated on Monday afternoon from 4 pm until 10 pm.
Eskom says it will implement various stages of power cuts throughout the week.
The power utility warns it will take a few weeks before its power generation system recovers to what it was before workers embarked on a strike.
Eskom says it hopes blackouts will be gradually reduced to stage two by the weekend.
South Africa is currently on stage 4 power cuts.
