David Whitehead Textiles is due to get its electricity supply restored, after government intervention. The company had its electricity disconnected after it had failed to settle its bills. However, the Ministry of Industry and Commerce has intervened and worked out a payment plant with ZESA, in order to allow the textile company to reopen.
Industry and Commerce deputy minister, Chiratidzo Mabuwa told parliament:
MPs might be aware that David Whitehead is currently closed following the disconnection of power supplies by Zesa in mid-August 2016 over an outstanding electricity bill.
The ministry has since engaged Zesa to reconnect power supplies to allow the company to re-open, while servicing the debt based on an agreeable payment plan.
