Eskom said that it remains open to assisting Zimbabwe with electricity supply.

Zimbabweans are facing the worst rolling blackouts in three years, with households, businesses and industries, including mines, left without electricity for up to eight hours a day.

Zimbabwe is reportedly making arrangements to increase power imports from Mozambique and South Africa to help stave off load shedding.

Eskom currently supplies Zimbabwe with 50 megawatts of electricity but said it hasn’t been approached to supply any more at this stage.

But if it is, they will be open to it, seeing as the country is already a customer.

“They’re customers of ours and we’ve to deal with them, as we do with others, we’ve to listen to their concerns and to see whether there might be an opportunity for us to be able to assist. But we’ll not do that without giving due consideration to our operational capability,” said Naresh Singh to EWN.
