Zimbabwe begs Eskom for power after partly servicing debt
$10m of a $33m debt has been paid to Eskom, and Zimbabwe, which is having its worst power cuts in a decade, now wants some help from SA
Zimbabwe’s government said on Tuesday that it would beg Eskom to urgently supply it with power after paying $10m to offset a $33m debt owed to the SA power utility.
Zimbabwe is experiencing its worst power cuts in a decade of between 15 and 18 hours a day. These power cuts have further escalated Zimbabwe’s economic challenges as large companies are forced to import power on their own.
