Brace yourselves for 12-hour load shedding

The Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) has announced that we should expect 12-hour load shedding due to diminished output at Hwange and Kariba power stations.

The statement from the ZETDC reads as follows:

The ZETDC (Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company) is experiencing a power shortfall due to generation constraints at Hwange Power Station, limited imports and a programme of dam wall rehabilitation at Kariba, which requires that two generators be taken out for 12 hours. The planned outrage of the two units then restricts Kariba Power Station output during these hours.

  1. Umm this is load shedding is now too much. Ever since this other guy took over seems nothing has ever run smoothly at Hwange.Last month the company didn’t even finish the water allocated for power generation at Kariba. No power generation station is running at optimum.

  2. I like Sir Maxwell Chikumbutso’s green power generator. He would have solved completely this problem and even generated the much sought after foreign currency by exporting surplus power. Problem is, we seem to grab whatever that comes in the name of FOREIGN TECHNOLOGY, no matter the cost and try to fix whatever that needs fixing at “home”. If Sir Chikumbutso was not Zimbabwean we would have welcomed his innovations.

    1. Which foreign technologies are you talking about, coal and hydro-electric power stations? 🤣 Things we’ve used since before independence.

      Why not buy the Saith infinity energy device to power your home, if you believe in such “science”? Then neither you nor your grandchildren will ever need to pay for power.

  3. This time they can’t say Kariba Dam has run out of water. God intervene for Zimbabwe. There’s total system failure which needs to be overhauled.

  4. Munhu aishandisa nokia1610 akatomborambawo kuti hazvigoneke kuti kugadzirwe imwe foni inonzi iPhone 12 pro max or Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra. Zim mentality (Phd- pull him/her down)

    1. Solar is a great alternative but the problem is that only a very small percentage of Zimbabweans can afford a solar system. The rest are living hand to mouth and the food isn’t even adequate.

  5. zim dollar, zim roads, zim education, zim health care, zim electricity anything zim duznt work wat a shame. 2 decades of powercuts we are open for business for sure
