HARARE – Patrons at Danhiko had to spent the last week towards school closure without electricity following a Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority’s blitz in closing electricity to entities that are awing them.

In the sweeping blitz conducted by the power utility in July, ZESA closed down power one of Zimbabwe’s leading social welfare organisation which works with people living with disability through providing education ,vocational skills and shelter to those living with impairments.

Following a visit by our Zimbabwe Daily crew to the school, the situation is sad as the authorities have had to delay the opening of the vocational centre.

One official who spoke on condition of anonymity  said it was shocking that ZESA could donate a bus to the school and switch them off grid.

“We can not open the school because we serve people of different abilities. You switch off power on someone who is deaf and dumb, you have taken them off their communication. So we have delayed opening the vocational school. We offer boarding facilities to people with different special needs. We house those on wheelchairs, the deaf and dumb, Albinos, those with vision loss, so you can imagine the chaos and dire situation we find ourselves, and the worry is ZESA knows our circumstances. They even donated a bus to us, and they switch us off. Our resources are dependent on donations and government BEAM payments, which you are aware, everything is just low,@ he said.

The social welfare organisation is also appealing for assistance from the donor community to help them clear their electricity bill that is in excess of zwl$3 million.
