Indeed we are getting power from Eskom up to 400MW. The major challenge is that the gap being left by Kariba is progressively getting bigger.

From 1050MW down to 360MW. It’s this difference in addition to plant breakdown which is driving load shedding.

Gwasira further revealed that load shedding is now at Stage 2 following a technical fault at Hwange Thermal Power Station. Said Gwasira:

Zesa is implementing stage 2 load shedding due to a technical fault at Hwange and the loss of one of the Stage 2 Units at 1700hrs. This lead to a loss of about 160MW. Load shedding hours and affected areas have extended beyond the publicized schedule.
