Zimbabwean, Zambian ministers meet over Kariba Dam

via Breaking: Zimbabwean, Zambian ministers meet over Kariba Dam March 25, 2014 in NewsDay

Environment minister Saviour Kasukuwere, Energy minister Dikamai Mavhaire and his deputy Munacho Mutezo are reportedly in Kariba, meeting with Zambian Mines, Energy and Water Development minister Christopher Yaluma to discuss the condition of the Kariba Dam wall.

After the closed door meeting, the ministers are expected to tour the dam.

The meeting follows reports that the economically vital dam – which is the source of major electricity supplies to Zambia and Zimbabwe- had developed serious structural weaknesses and the arch wall could collapse if $250 million worth of repairs are not made within the next three years.

    How many meetings will be held before repairs are done to the wall? These non-technical guys waste vital time doing useless meetings without the proper structural experts checking the wall cracks and other defects.We want proper action not your window dressing meetings.

      What are they going to do if they cannot steal a dam wall from someone else?
