Energy Crisis Looms as Kariba Dam Drops to Lowest Level Yet

Zambia and Zimbabwe have reduced power generation to around half capacity at their power stations at the Kariba Dam because of falling water levels in the reservoir. The dam has dropped to 43% of capacity from 85% in October 2018, as inflows from the Zambezi River, dwindle.
