Talking at a nationwide clean-up marketing campaign in Domboshava yesterday, Mnangagwa mentioned the present scarcity of electrical energy was attributable to low ranges of water within the Lake Kariba, leading to lowered era.
He mentioned regardless of the fee of the Kariba South energy station which added a further 300MW to the nationwide grid, there haven’t been important inflows of water into the Lake this yr resulting from a drought.
“I’ll meet South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa to debate if we will get extra electrical energy from Eskom. If we succeed within the negotiations, the scenario will vastly enhance,” Mnangagwa mentioned.
Zimbabwe this week paid US$10 million to Eskom to cut back its large debt with the South African energy utility.
