South Africa's Eskom acting CEO says no power cuts this year

JOHANNESBURG, May 3 (Reuters) - South African power utility Eskom, which is struggling from a financial crisis, said on Thursday that it would not resort to controlled power blackouts this year despite previous reports that it was facing coal shortages.

“There will not be load-shedding this year,” said Eskom’s acting Chief Executive Phakamani Hadebe, referring to forced interruptions to power supply. (Reporting by Alex Winning Editing by James Macharia)
