JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African power utility Eskom said on Monday it expects supply to be tight in the next few days due to outages on some of its units.

"Air-conditioning load is also expected to increase from tomorrow due to warm weather conditions forecasted," Eskom said in a statement.
