JOHANNESBURG - Eskom says it does not expect to implement load-shedding on Sunday.

Eskom however, said load-shedding could be implemented on short notice.

Previously Eskom said it will resume load-shedding on Sunday at 8am.

Consumers breathed a sigh of relief after Eskom suspended rotational power cuts at 5pm on Saturday.

The embattled utility says two generation units successfully returned to service earlier than expected.
