Zesa Holdings insists that a 30 percent tariff increase is critical as it would ensure the country continues to enjoy a steady supply of electricity, as there would be funds to repair the transmission and distribution network while also allowing the firm to purchase inputs such as coal and diesel whose prices have gone up.
This is despite the fact that Energy and Power Development Minister Dr Joram Gumbo is opposed to a tariff increase.

The country's power utility says it has been battling to get a tariff increase for some time, but the Zimbabwe Energy Regulatory Authority (Zera) turned down one such application in 2016.
