Mozambique to sell up to 150MW of Electricity to Zimbabwe

  • Mozambique will be selling more energy to Zimbabwe 

So said Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Verónica Macamo Ndlovu, in Maputo yesterday at the end of official talks between President Filipe Nyusi and his Zimbabwean counterpart, Emmerson Mnangagwa, who has been on a state visit to the country since Sunday.

“Due to the continuous demand of the agriculture sector and mining industry in Zimbabwe, we are looking to increase the quality of energy supplied,” Minister Macamo said. Electricity would be supplied under an agreement signed in 1997 between Hidroeléctrica de Cahora Bassa (HCB), state-owned Electricidade de Moçambique (EDM) and the Zimbabwe Energy Supply Authority (ZESA).

In March, EDM and ZESA signed a contract for the supply of 50MW of electricity to Zimbabwe for a period of three years. It constitutes a renewal of the previous agreement, which expired on December 31, 2021, but now includes additional energy of up to 150MW.
