ABSTRACT
The article deals with the disruption of coal supplies to the main power-generating station in Zimbabwe. The breakdown at Hwange power station had robbed the country of 500 mega watts of power, nearly one-third of its needs. Zimbabwe has been experiencing erratic power due to diminished imports from regional suppliers, as well as foreign currency shortages needed to import spares for broken-down power stations.
