ZIMBABWE-BULAWAYO- Zimbabweans have been advised of intensified load shedding after revelations that four Zesa Units at the Hwange Thermal Station have stopped generating power due to the acute shortage of coal, Zimbabwe Telegraph reports.
With the country at the beginning of the winter season that always experiences an increase in the demand of power due to the cold weather, Zimbabweans are headed for the worst winter in the history of the country.
