A Zesa worker was fatally electrocuted on Tuesday after an operational flop while working on the power lines.

According to H-metro, a ZESA worker whose name is being withheld was electrocuted in Battlefields in Kadoma when power was unexpectedly restored while still working on the fault.

The helpless employee was later rushed to Harare for medical attention but unfortunately died on his way.

Speaking on the incident, the Police National Spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi confirmed the matter saying,

“We are investigating a case in Battlefield whereby a ZESA employee was allegedly electrocuted whilst trying to fix a fault……his identity will immediately be revealed to his next of kin”

The incident happened hours after the struggling power utility issued a statement that it would increase the power outages and work outside the known or advertised schedule.

Load-shedding is thus being implemented over and above the advertised schedule.

The power utility is yet to comment on the incident.
