ZIMBABWE has started exporting electricity to regional countries especially Namibia, buoyed by increased production at the Kariba Power Station which came into life in March last year.
President Mnangagwa commissioned Unit 7 and 8, which were constructed at a cost of $531 million by China’s Sinohydro, resulting in an additional 300MW into the national grid. The Zimbabwe Power Company (ZPC) has confirmed that the new project has resulted in the country generating above target and exporting the excess power to NamPower, Namibia’s power utility company.
Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa Swears In Cabinet
AIWA! NO!//Zimbabwe’s opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party has reportedly said that it is planning to “inaugurate” its leader Nelson Chamisa as the legitimately elected president of Zimbabwe, following the disputed July 30 elections.
According to New Zimbabwe.com, Chamisa confirmed the development when he addressed his supporters in Chitungwiza over the weekend.
The “inauguration” was scheduled to take place during his party’s upcoming 19th anniversary celebrations.
“Next week, the MDC family will celebrate its 19th Anniversary. As a party, we sat down and discussed the issue on election theft. We want to conclude this matter,” Chamisa was quoted as saying.
To be, or not to be, that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And by opposing end them. To die—to sleep,
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to: ’tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish’d.
The World attention will today focuses on Zimbabwe when the Constitutional Court (Concourt) hears, in a live broadcast, the petition lodged by MDC-Alliance leader Mr Nelson Chamisa in his bid to overturn President Mnangagwa’s victory in the July 30 harmonised elections.
In the process, the court will ink its own piece of history, as it broadcasts the proceedings live from Mashonganyika Building on the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) television and radio, which have been granted the rights.
