The president of the Zimbabwe Flower Growers Association, Andrew Bowden, last week said farmers in some areas were operating with only two hours of power, in spite of ZESA’s promise to provide 21 hours of electricity.
“Flowers have not been irrigated for a month in the main flower producing areas in Vumba. We are not receiving the 21 hours supply of electricity that ZESA promised,” he said.
Bowden said many growers were unable to meet export orders because of the power cuts.
“The viability of flower growers has been seriously threatened,” he added.Post published in: News
