Power woes to ease end October

HARARE - Zimbabwe's power woes will ease by end of October, new Energy minister Dzikamai Mavhaire said yesterday.

He said there will be relative load shedding after October, as Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) continues to undertake a scheduled maintenance programme on power plants around the country.

“We expect the current situation to continue to improve. The breakdowns at Hwange and the transmission have been resolved,” Mavahaire said.

“The power supply is expected to improve steadily and reach acceptable levels by end of October.” He did not state what the acceptable levels were.

He said government was also pinning its hopes on the current regional negotiations. Zimbabwe both contractually imports and exports electricity in the region.

This minister has an empty head. How can he just the power situation will ease end of October without articulating "HOW". I remember the former energy minister, Hon. Elton Mangoma, used to say this but with exactly how it will be done and at the end it was done. VaMavhaire maratidza kuti hamutoziviwo zvirikuitika apa nekuti hapana chamataura. This is nonsense at its highest level
