Eskom said there was a risk of stage 1 load-shedding from 2pm to 10pm on Thursday.

The power utility said the load-shedding was as a result of a shortage of generating capacity.

Eskom said load-shedding was done countrywide as a controlled option to respond to unplanned events to protect the electricity power system from a total blackout.
