More Power Cuts Ahead

Consumers have recently been warned of more power cuts ahead as Zimbabwe’s power utility made an announcement on Sunday after it lost 251 megawatts from its Hwange power station.

“Three generator units tripped at Hwange power station this morning,” Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission Distribution Co. said on its Twitter account.

“Load shedding has now increased significantly and we are now implementing stage 2” power cuts outside the normal schedule.

Blackouts in Zimbabwe already last as much as 18 hours a day and consumers are still trying to cope with the load-shedding timetable having to wake up early before the electricity is gone so that they can do house chores which need power-on time

  Currently, the country spends $23 million monthly on power imports, according to the energy regulator.
