Lake Kariba Fails To Generate Power Despite Rains in Zimbabwe

Zimbabweans face the prospect of longer power cuts following revelations by authorities that water levels at Kariba Dam, the country's source of hydro-power, remain below expected volumes needed to generate power. Zimbabwe is enduring an unprecedented electricity crisis which has prompted up to 18 hours a day of so-called load shedding, because the grid can't generate enough energy to meet national demand or pay for adequate power imports, owing to foreign-currency shortages.
