JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa's power utility Eskom said it would cut up to 2,000 megawatts of electricity from the grid on Thursday from 0600 GMT to 2000 GMT.

The state-owned utility cuts power to prevent demand from surging past available supply as it embarks on a maintenance of its creaky stations.
