ZESA has denied claims by Coal Producers Association chairman that ZPC has not paid them for the coal they have supplied the power company.
Speaking to The Herald, ZESA’s Sydney Gata said:
They are being paid, even for coal which is out of satisfaction. They are being paid for the poor quality coal they are supplying, which damages equipment.
I am meeting them (coal miners soon) to tell them that if they continue to supply rubbish coal, we will not pay. I will embarrass them. I was in Hwange yesterday (Thursday last week) and everyone is complaining about the quality of coal. Only Hwange can complain, not all those makorokozas.
