ZESA To Pay Electricity Bill

Reports in local media state that ZESA is set to start paying off the debt it owes Mozambique’s power utility Hydro Cahora Bassa.

ZESA is expected to pay about US$36 million to Mozambique’s Hydro Cahora Bassa to reduce Zesa’s power debt. Zesa owes Hydro Cahora Bassa US$76 million.

It is rumoured that Mozambique has agreed to ensure uninterrupted power supply in the interim if Zimbabwe reduces its debt to below US$40 million.

Energy and Power Development Minister, Elton Mangoma has often blasted the culture of non-payment of bills and said customers needed to pay for electricity or risk being cut off, at least we as a nation are listening to our advice.
