  • the cumulative price increase for 23rd and 1st October is 125%.. so that means you have to multiply whatever you were paying for 300 kwh by 2.25 to get the new price.

    • You are not being ripped off my guy. ZESA is just aligning their price to reflect movements in price of inputs in production. Coal has gone up, water from Zambezi is now too costly, chemicals are out of reach etc. For Zesa to continue generating, it has to pass the costs to the consumer. Unfortunately.
