Load-shedding remains one of the biggest risks for South Africa this year, even more so than a looming global recession.
This is the view of Intellidex analyst Peter Attard Montalto.
Eskom is currently implementing stage six load-shedding until further notice due to a high number of breakdowns at its power stations.
Eskom Spokesperson Sikhonathi Mantshantsha says unit one of Matla power station in Mpumalanga was shut down last night to repair a boiler tube leak.
Mantshantsha says they forecast stage seven load-shedding in July, as on average the peak may be higher.
Meanwhile, the National Energy Regulator of South Africa is today also set to decide on whether it should grant the power utility a 32% tariff increase.
