Could a New Eskom Deal Ease Zimbabwe's Energy Troubles?

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has held bilateral talks with South African leader Cyril Ramaphosa to find lasting solutions to Zimbabwe's power crisis. This comes after the government paid U.S.$10 million to reduce the debt owed by the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority to South African energy utility Eskom. Mnangagwa also says Mozambique is ready to assist Zimbabwe with increased supplies of electricity from Cahora Bassa.
