The national power company ZETDC has announced that it is going to escalate the electricity load-shedding to Stage 2 due to the massive power cuts that is happening in the neighbouring South Africa.

Said ZETDC, "The Eskom alert will affect Power Imports. As such load shedding will be implemented at Stage 2 today (Wednesday)."

ZETDC Spokesperson Fullard Gwasira said the company was also failing to service its clients because of the vandalism that was happening to transformers.

"We are losing an average 5 transformers every night. The rate is faster than we are able to replace. Be vigilant and report to the police any suspicious activities."

Zimbabwe currently has areas that go up to 18 hours without electricity.
