Please, Zesa come to our rescue now

EDITOR — I am a resident of Zengeza 1 in Chitungwiza and Zesa Holdings (Zesa) personnel were installing prepaid meters on Monday in houses along Mubvumira, Guyo, Rusero, Svosve, Mutsi and Danga roads in our vicinity.

An explosion occurred at a transformer unit or is it a substation along Danga Road.

Most of us did not think much of it at that point and actually assumed the problem could be rectified in the shortest possible time.

We are all aware of the current challenges on our power situation as a nation but as residents we still expected some kind of update as to what is going on to allow us to plan.

We had food in our refrigerators and those of us who would buy liquefied petroleum (LP) gas, paraffin, firewood for cooking had not anticipated such a lengthy power supply interruption.

As a result, unexpected pressure has been exerted on our already lean pockets.

Our question to Zesa is, why have we not had any form of update as to what is actually going on.

Knowing the community we live in, it is not surprising that one day we may wake up to hear demands of cash towards the fixing of that particular problem.

The major problem is we do not even know what is going on since nobody has bothered telling us what exactly transpired leading to the explosion that plunged Mubvumira and Danga roads into darkness.

We would want to avoid situations where some unscrupulous people may connive to fleece innocent and unsuspecting as well as desperate residents in the name of buying something for that transformer.

Our food is rotting and we also need electricity during those periods it is available in our area.

Could Zesa please explain what happened because the only thing we have seen is people digging around the transformer.

Please, help us before we get fleeced of our hard-earned cash.


Zengeza 1.
