Cape Town - While Eskom managed to avert loadshedding the past few days, the power utility said it's not out of the woods yet and urged South Africans to assume the worst for the Friday morning peak.

Wildcat strikes have affected operations at some power plants, forcing Eskom to put electricity users on alert of possible loadshedding as a last resort if the power grid comes under pressure.

"The risk of rotational loadshedding remains high for tomorrow [Friday] from 05h00, but it will only be implemented if absolutely necessary. This as a result of the industrial action and the impact on Eskom’s operations."
