ZIMBABWE’s Energy and Power Development Minister, Fortune Chasi, says he has been holding discussions with South African officials to find a lasting solution to the ongoing power supply challenges in Zimbabwe.

A crippling load-shedding programme has seen the country experiencing an average of 15 hours without electricity.

Last week Minister Chasi met South Africa’s Mineral Resources and Energy Minister, Gwede Mantashe, to discuss a power deal.
