JOHANNESBURG - Eskom has warned there’s a high possibility of load-shedding on Tuesday evening.

Stage 1 rotational load-shedding may be implemented from now until 10pm.

LOAD-SHEDDING: Schedules, info, and how it affects you

Eskom says it's as a result of a shortage of capacity due to the loss of generating units at power stations.

However, the power utility says it won't implement load-shedding unless it's absolutely necessary.
