Acting Minister of Energy and Power Development Dr Jenfan Muswere yesterday released a statement assuring Zimbabweans that the prevailing power situation is going to ease.
Minister Muswere said power units in Hwange, which had broken down are now back up and running.
“I am pleased to announce that there is a return of service that had been affected by a technical fault at the Hwange Power Station,” said Minister Muswere.
He said power generation at Kariba South Hydro Power Station is now stable as all units are back in service.
“Most units are back at Hwange, with Bulawayo, Munyati and Harare power stations also contributing to the national grid,” added Minister Muswere.
Households and businesses were urged to use electricity sparingly.
“According to the power utility, we will further reduce load shedding and consumers are advised to use available power sparingly to minimise the prospects of load shedding,” Minister Muswere said.
