Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA) has reported a fault at Hwange Power Station which will result in more frequent power cuts nationwide.
In a statement, ZESA advised that there is also loss of interconnection to Eskom.
“ZESA Holdings would like to advise its valued customers countrywide that there is limited power supply in the national electricity grid due to technical faults at Hwange at 1141hrs yesterday (Wednesday).
“The depressed power supply situation has also been compounded by the unavailability of normal import levels due to the loss of interconnection to Eskom of South Africa.
“The interconnection to South Africa has since been restored and recovery of service to optimum levels at Hwange is currently underway. Customers are advised to use the available power very sparingly and updates will be availed as the situation improves.”
The power cuts seem to have intensified in the country over the past week.
