Power went off at around 8:30 in the morning and was only reconnected around midday. This forced many businesses around the country to resort to generators.

ZESA Holdings (Zesa) spokesman Fullard Gwasira said the blackout was a result of a technical problem at one of the power utility’s stations in Kariba.

“We had a system disturbance on the national grid, but all the generators at Kariba station were restored,” Gwasira said.

“At Hwange Power Station, we are expecting that they will finish servicing some of the generators today (yesterday).”

This is not the first time the city and some parts of the country have gone for hours without electricity due to technical faults.

  1. Until we learn to learn and accept reality, energy will always be a problem and hydro is NOT the answer. Its limited in scope and as has been proven times over, has recurrent technical manifestations. Renewable energy is the way to go. SOLAR is the answer. I believe this is common knowledge.
