In a statement, Parirenyatwa Hospital said they were negotiating with Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA) to have normal  supplies resumed.

Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals would like to inform members of the public and our stakeholders that we are currently experiencing unpredictable and intermittent power cuts for several hours. Unlike before, the hospital is on one way power supply from the feeder pillar at Harare Gardens since the other supply line from Lincoln has developed a cable fault.

“The hospital is relying on its 8 backup generators during the periods when we do not have power supply form ZESA. Our generators have capacity to provide electricity to critical areas like theatres, Intensive care Units, Renal Unit, Mbuya Nehanda Martenity Hospital and other essential area. Other areas are provided with lighting.

“The hospital authorities are in discussions with ZESA in a bid to restore normalcy in the supply of electricity to the hospital. We appeal to our patients and the general public as some of our services are interrupted by the erratic supply of electricity,” reads the statement.
