Zimbabwe will this week pay US$10m to South Africa's power utility Eskom as part of plans to unlock at least 400MW to ease power shortages in the country.


The southern African country, which according to power utility Zesa was producing 1200MW as of Sunday, needs at least 1700MW per day to meet demand. Over the years it has relied on Eskom and Mozambique's HCB for additional power.
