The Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC), a subsidiary of ZESA Holdings has warned its defaulting customers that they will be disconnected.
In a statement, ZESA Public Relations Manager Fullard Gwasira said the power utility will cut off power supplies to defaulters who have not made an effort to clear their debts or make payment plans with ZESA. He said:
The Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) would like to advise all defaulting customers who are on the post-paid system to settle their electricity bills without any further delay to avoid the inconvenience associated with power being disconnected.
In the interest of quality service provision, ZETDC is implementing its full complement of credit control measures to defaulters who did not make an effort to clear their debts or engage the power utility for payment plans.
Gwasira called upon consumers to settle their bills to enable ZESA to efficiently provide service as the funds will be used to import power, pay for coal for local generation, and buy spares for network maintenance, among other uses.
