Zimbabwe requires at least US$14m a month to meet its 600MW power deficit, acting chief executive officer of the country’s power utility Patrick Chivaura said Monday.

Zimbabwean president Emmerson Mnangagwa has since engaged his South African counterpart President Cyril Ramaphosa for help.

The two met over the weekend in Niamey, Niger. They “exchanged views” on how to deal with the issues of the power deficit in the southern African country, according to Mnangagwa.
