ZERA is reportedly reviewing an application by ZESA to increase electricity tariffs, The Herald reports. The matter came to light when ZERA chief executive Mr Eddington Mazambani spoke to the publication on the sidelines of a commissioning ceremony of Chijawi Primary and Secondary schools’ electrification project in Hurungwe district and said:
Tariff increases are not granted easily, we will conduct an extensive interrogation and scrutinisation of the proposed tariffs to ensure that they are justified
The proposed tariffs adjustment is aimed at cushioning ZESA from Inflation which is increasing on an exponential basis. When contacted for comment ZESA spokesperson Fullard Gwasira confirmed ZESA applied for a tariff increase.
