The Zambezi River Authority (ZRA) has assured the public that the water levels in the Kariba dam are still adequate enough for power generation.

ZRA Acting Chief Executive Manager, Peter Kapinga said the water levels are expected to increase between first and second quarter of 2019.

Mr. Kapinga stated that the escalation of water levels will be due to much rainfall activity in the Kariba catchment leading to increased availability of water for electricity generation at Kariba dam.

He said this in a statement availed to ZANIS today.

Meanwhile, Mr. Kapinga said the water levels at Kariba dam are currently in recession as expected during this time of the year.

He further stated that as of yesterday, December 27, the recorded water levels at the lake were seven metres above the minimum operating level.

Mr. Kapinga noted that the seven metres water levels recorded were two metres higher than what was recorded during the same period in 2017.

  1. And i quote “The Zambezi River Authority (ZRA) has assured the public that the water levels in the Kariba dam are still adequate enough for power generation.” Ba LT employ editors please!!”adquate enough” really?????

    • The headline says “Kariba water levels high than last year ZRA”
      It’s grade 5 grammar that teaches one the correct structure is “Kariba water levels higher than last year-ZRA”
      Who will save us from Exam leaks? President Lungu since your Ministers can’t halt the rot please call for national prayers for exam leaks to end. Sniff sniff cry!

  2. #1 vubwi, let’s not allow our grade seven children to read LT, not good for their english exams……

  3. Good news this. April is about the time that most of the water “will have reached” the dam. This view is so serene and soothing! – from the Zim side I guess, looking at the curve of the bridge.
