With the country bearing the brunt of an average 19 hours of daily power load shedding, Zanu-PF has said the outages are the design of God, arguing that nobody else has power over water levels in Kariba Dam.
Speaking at a Zanu-PF Masvingo Provincial Coordinating Committee (PCC) meeting over the weekend, Zanu-PF national secretary for security Lovemore Matuke said people should stop blaming the ruling party on the current power crisis as they have no capacity to add water into the dam.
“Zanu-PF is capable of doing a lot of things but we cannot add water into Kariba Dam so that we generate adequate electricity.
“God decided to give us little rains so the load shedding is by God’s design. The government is trying to pull all the strings to make sure that we source electricity from our neighbours Mozambique and South Africa,” said Matuke.
South Africa’s power utility Eskom and Mozambique’s Cabbora Bassa have discontinued supplying Zimbabwe with electricity owing to millions in unpaid debts and the government says it has since paid $10 million to Eskom.
Government says it cannot supply adequate electricity to households and industry partly because the Kariba hydro power station is operating below capacity due to low water levels in the dam.
Critics have however dismissed this claim, saying the neighbouring Zambia does not suffer as much load shedding despite relying on the same station for much of its power requirements.
They blame government profligacy and the resultant failure to pay for supplementary power imports from neighbouring countries.
