POWER utility ZESA Holdings has issued a warning to consumers that as the rain season starts, there are bound to be frequent faults due to damage to electricity infrastructure.

In a notice to customers, ZESA subsidiary the Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC) advised electricity consumers to report any faults in their areas and treat all electricity cables as live.

“Now that the rains are upon us, trees falling on power lines, water seeping into cable joints and substations being struck by lightning will cause damage to ZETDC infrastructure resulting in more frequent faults.

“We urge all our valued customers not to touch any dangling cables and to report such faults as soon as possible to the nearest ZETDC office for speedy recovery. Customers are reminded to always be alert around electricity cables and to always treat them as live as power is restored without warning,” ZETDC said in the statement.
