Mugabe on power crisis: Companies should operate at night

0

President Robert Mugabe on Thursday said Energy minister Samuel Undenge was not to blame for the crippling electricity crisis in Zimbabwe.

 

Addressing his party supporters at the Harare International Airport after jetting in from a United Nations Summit in New York, Mugabe said his government was now working on a solar power plan for the country.

He, however conceded that the electricity crisis was not ending soon and urged companies to operate at night when power is available.

The Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company last week announced a tight load shedding schedule under which the majority of areas are having electricity for less than five hours a day.
