Zimbabwes Plunged Into Crisis As ZESA Confirms 10 Hour Power Cuts

The Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company has introduced a 10-hour load-shedding schedule in most parts of the country.


The power cuts are a result of reduced power generation caused by the dilapidated state of equipment at the power stations in the country and the low water levels in Kariba Dam.

The power supply company confirmed that the load shedding will be implemented during the morning and evening peak period of 5 am to 10 am and 5 pm to 10 pm, however, the durations could even be longer if power generation further falls

ZESA spokesperson Fullard Gwasira confirmed the latest developments to Sunday News

We had very little in terms of rainfall influence into the lake and we have reached a point whereby the power generation has scaled down, if we do not scale down we may have to shut down the entire situation around October because we won’t be having water.

Kariba is a hydro station and requires water so until there are significant inflows into the lake the current generation pattern will subsist.
