Zimbabwe Drought: Mines And Farms Disconnected From Water Supply


Zimbabwe’s State-owned electricity distributor, Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC or Zesa), grappling with drought and ageing equipment, yesterday said it would disconnect mines, farms and other users as it looks to recover $77 million in unpaid bills. ZETDC said in a public notice it was owed $1,2 billion (US$77 million) and it was targeting to recover the money from mining, agriculture, commercial and domestic users. Defaulters should “settle their electricity bills without any further delay to avoid the inconvenience associated with power being disconnected,” ZETDC said as it steps up its revenue collection efforts.
