Zimbabwe’s Minister Of Power Sacked Over 8-hr-outage Daily by ikewaterwater: 7:31am On May 16
Zimbabwe's Minister of Power, Joram Gumbo, has been sacked by President Emmerson Mnangagwa over the 8-hour-outage per day.Though the minister had licenced over 30 companies to provide solar power to the country and concluded plans to travel to Mozambique, a neighbouring country, to make an arrangement for an electricity supply deal, however Zimbabwe has been experiencing the worst electricity blackouts since 2016.

While the Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC), the state-owned power firm, said there would be blackouts for about eight hours daily because of a drop in output at its largest hydro plant and ageing coal-fired generators, Reuters reported that the last time Zimbabwe experienced such serious blackouts was in 2016 after a devastating drought. The country is currently producing 969 megawatts (MW) daily against peak demand of 2,100 MW, and this has been blamed on the very low rainfall experienced during the 2018-2019 raining season with most water bodies drying up.

The poor electricity transmission which led to 8-hour-outage per day, got the Zimbabwe's Minister of Power sacked. He has been replaced with Fortune Chasi, the deputy minister for transport and infrastructural development.
