ZESA To Supply Power To Households Only At Night

The Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA) spokesperson, Fullard Gwasira revealed that the power utility is able to supply power to most of its customers during the night. He said:

The electricity supply situation is quite dire. Please use the available power very sparingly. We are able to supply most of our customers with power mostly during the night.

Gwasira added that the power supply situation will stabilise in March/April 2020 if high rainfall is received in the oncoming rainy season. He said:

If we get a good rainfall season, the impact of that will be felt around March/April 2020.

The country is importing electricity from neighbouring countries which costs US$15 million per month, a situation that is unsustainable, claimed Gwasira. He said:

Imports currently cost us about 15m USD per month. Raising this figure or expecting to import indefinitely is not sustainable in the environment of the forex crunch. Let alone the security of supply issues.

  1. Well, this is the most ridiculous statement made in a long time, we have only been going through this sort of crap for how many months now, I don’t think we need to be told now that power can only be supplied at night, where is Zesa’s sense of responsibility. If there is any truth as to the authenticity of this statement I suggest that the author gets real.

  2. What is being done with all the money we are still putting into our prelaid meters?
    Is zesa suing the debtors…starting with the ZANU PF thieves running this godforsaken country?
