Meanwhile, the country has been running on power deficit for years now owing to a number of factors, including reduced power generation due to antiquated equipment.

Recently, the power utility warned of reduced electricity owing to breakdowns at Hwange Power Station, this left a number or areas in the dark.

Apparently, the Zimbabwe National Road Authority has been accused of rampant corruption, a move that has hampered service delivery.
