Zimbabwean President Sacks Energy Minister Over Power Outage

Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa has sacked the Minister of Energy and Power Development, Joram Gumbo, amidst the worst electricity blackouts since 2016.

He has been replaced by Fortune Chasi, the Transport and Infrastructural Development Deputy Minister.

Mr Gumbo has been made a minister in the president’s office, in charge of implementation and monitoring performance of government departments.

The state-owned power firm said on Monday there would be blackouts of between five and eight hours a day because of a drop in output at its largest hydro plant and ageing coal-fired generators.
