Zesa scales down load-shedding

Zesa Holdings has downgraded load-shedding from Stage Two to Stage One after it started receiving 400MW from Eskom of South Africa last Thursday, an official has said.

Zesa will now cut off power during the morning and evening peak hours.

The peak hours are 5 am to 10 am and 5 pm to 10 pm and are largely predictable and easy to plan for.

This comes after Government made arrangements with the South African firm to offset its US$23 million debt by paying US$890 000 weekly.

Zesa spokesperson Mr. Fullard Gwasira said the new development will not do away with load-shedding completely but will downgrade to Stage One.

“The electricity supply situation has improved significantly following interventions by both the Government and the line ministry to access power from the region.
