ZIMBABWE FIRES POWER MINISTER OVER 8-HOUR DAILY POWER OUTAGE
President Emmerson Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe has fired Joram Gumbo, his minister of energy and power development, over “poor electricity supply” across the country.
According to report, Zimbabwe is experiencing the worst electricity blackouts since 2016.
This is coming after the minister had licenced over 30 companies to provide solar power to the country and concluded plans to travel to Mozambique, a neighboring country, to make an arrangement for an electricity supply deal.
Gumbo was replaced by Fortune Chasi, the deputy minister for transport and infrastructural development.
