Zimbabwe’s power utility warned of increased power cuts on Sunday after it lost 251 megawatts from its Hwange power station.

"Three generator units tripped at Hwange power station this morning," Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission Distribution said on its Twitter account. "Load shedding has now increased significantly and we are now implementing stage 2" power cuts outside the normal schedule.

Blackouts in Zimbabwe already last as much as 18 hours a day and the country spends $23 million monthly on power imports, according to the energy regulator.
