JOHANNESBURG - Eskom is reducing load-shedding from stage 2 to stage 1 from 12 pm on Saturday.

Earlier, Eskom dropped load-shedding from Stage 3 to Stage 2.

The embattled power utility says it's due to a drop in demand and an improving generation system.

READ: Load-shedding for the weekend

Eskom implemented stage 4 load-shedding this week after its Koeberg Unit tripped.

It has since been brought back online.

South Africans are urged to continue using electricity sparingly.
