A broader national response is required to tackle the energy shortages gripping Zimbabwe, including increasing imports and harnessing renewable energy, Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa said in his weekly column published in the state-run Sunday Mail on Sunday.

Zimbabwe's energy supplies have been significantly curtailed after Kariba Power Station, the country's main hydropower plant, cut generation by half due to receding water levels.

Mnangagwa said his government will urgently find solutions to the power shortages. "We urgently need to plug the current deficit through more imports. Enough resources have to be mobilized for that to happen."
