ZESA Secures 100 Megawatts From Mozambique

Zimbabwe has reached a deal with Mozambique to import an additional 100MW from that country, effective October 1, 2019.

This was revealed by Energy and Power Development Minister, Fortune Chasi, on Wednesday through his Twitter handle.

Moreover, unnamed officials from ZESA Holdings confirmed the deal to The Herald. They are quoted as saying:

Yes, Zimbabwe has indeed signed an agreement with its neighbour Mozambique.

We will start getting the 100MW from October 1, and we hope that the deal will go a long way in improving the power situation in the country.

You see, as far as we are concerned, every megawatt that we get is an improvement, but our challenge at the moment is that once we get additional power, some power plants break down leaving us in the same situation as we were before the additional power.

However, as a power utility, we are working tirelessly to ensure the power situation improves.

Meanwhile, Chasi confirmed that he appointed economist Ashok Chakravarti as Chair of the interim ZESA board. Said Chasi:

A whooping 450 something CVs received. Sorting them out ends today (yesterday). Meantime, I have appointed an interim board for ZESA chaired by Prof (Ashok) Chakravarti, a renowned economist.
