Quotes

"We have always said that Zimbabwe is interested in having Afcon here" said Gwesela
"They want to build the power station in three stages up to 1 200 MW and they are going to finance it as an independent power producer" Kadzura said
...In stark contrast, the High Court however has permanent seats only at Harare and at Bulawayo, and "sits three times in a year as a circuit court at Gweru, Masvingo, Mutare and Hwange."
"Kariba is producing only 625 megawatts instead of 750 megawatts. Load shedding is a function of demand and supply and consumption determines it. In Kariba one unit is going under maintenance and so it is not working at its full capacity" said Gwasira
