Kariba Power Station Could Be Shut Down In 14 Weeks – Chasi

The Minister of Energy and Power Development, Fortune Chasi revealed that Kariba Power Station could be shut down in 3 months’ time owing to the fast-receding water levels in the dam.

He said this in a Ministerial statement issued on Thursday, revealing that the power situation has become alarming. Said Chasi:

There is no guarantee that there will be water, what we are seeing is a southward movement in water levels at Kariba. If the trend goes like that, we will probably say just after 14 weeks Kariba will not generate any megawatts.
