Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) has just notified the public that load shedding will go to stage 2 from today. This has been caused by a “shortage of capacity” faced by South Africa’s Eskom, which exports electricity to Zimbabwe through ZETDC.

NewZwire reports that Zimbabwe’s 400 Megawatts deal with South Africa stipulates that during this time when Eskom implements its own stage 2 of load shedding, it reduces domestic electricity exports to Zimbabwe to zero but electricity exports for businesses “are reduced proportionally to the load shedding stage”.
All along I thought that currently load shedding was being implemented at stage 2- but apparently we were at stage 1. At stage 1 we spent, at least, 12 hours without electricity, now can you imagine how many hours we will spend without electricity on stage 2?
