ZESA Vandals Risk 30 Years In Jail

The Minister of Energy and Power Development, Fortune Chasi, has warned individuals caught vandalising electricity infrastructure that they risk 30-year-jail terms.

Chasi said this on Thursday while speaking during a National Energy Annual Innovations Summit in Harare. He said:

If we find anyone with two litres of transformer oil, one will be imprisoned for 30 years as well.

We are now close to 3 000 transformers stolen, the unfortunate part is that people are dying trying to steal ZESA cables and transformers.

ZETDC, a subsidiary of ZESA Holdings, experiences around 5 cases of vandalism of transformers or cables every day.

As a result, millions of dollars are needed to replace the stolen transformers, Chasi revealed.
