1 October 2007 – The Herald newspaper in Harare reports that electricity supplies to Zimbabwe by Mozambique has been reduced from 300MW to 195MW due to a current debt of $35 million. This development has resulted in Zesa Holdings increasing load shedding by 50 percent.
Acting Zesa spokesman, Sheperd Mandizvidza confirmed the reduction in power supply.
"Zesa had engaged HCB of Mozambique with a request to access 300MW up from 150MW. In principle this was agreed but is currently being thwarted by the increasing debt, now over US$35 million," he said.
