South Africa's struggling power utility Eskom said on Friday that 6,000 megawatts (MW) out of its 42,000 MW generating capacity is at risk of breakdown due to a maintenance backlog.

Eskom's Acting Chief Executive Brian Molefe said, however, that almost daily nationwide rolling power cuts were temporary and not systemic.
