Mozambique restores power to Zimbabwe

Zimbabwean energy official confirmed Tuesday Mozambiqu e had restored full electricity supplies to the country after reducing this by h a lf last month to carry out maintenance work on its grid.

Ben Rafemoyo, chief executive of state-run power utility ZESA Holdings, said Zim babwe was now getting 200 megawatts of electricity from Mozambique, an increase o f 100 megawatts.

Mozambique, one of the main sources of power imports for Zimbabwe, cut exports t o Zimbabwe by half last month to allow it to carryout maintenance work on its gr i d.

The move resulted in increased power rationing in Zimbabwe, which only generates 65 percent of its electricity needs. The balance is imported from Mozambique an d other regional markets.

Rafemoyo said Mozambique had restored power supplies after completing maintenanc e work, and this had improved electricity availability in Zimbabwe.
