Minister of Energy and Power Development Fortune Chasi has confirmed that Zimbabwe has paid off its $33 million debt it owed to South Africa’s Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd.
The Firebrand Minister said, “Zimbabwe will now have to re-engage the giant South African Power utility – Eskom for additional power supplies and focus attention on settling the debt with Mozambique”
Positive messages on vastly improved power supplies since last week have been directed towards the Minister who no doubt is The leading government official on engagement with the Zimbabweans he serves. Most government officials shun social media but in these modern times, it is a tool that gives leaders first-hand information directly from the consumers. Chasi is highly interactive and responds to as many complaints as possible something his counterparts in the Mines Ministry will be applauded for should they follow suit.
Recently there was an outcry from ASM on lack of engagement from the MMCZ and Mines & Mining Development Ministry, Chasi can be a shining example of how these two departments can improve on the PR front.
Hard to believe but ESCOM has, in fact now been paid off. • Eskom was paid the last US$890,000.00 for imports during this week. This means
Zesa can now negotiate for additional supplies if available. Attention now turns to HCB ( Mozambique).
