The Zambezi River Authority has increased water allocation for power generation operations at Kariba by 4 billion Cubic Meters.

Mr Munodawafa says this is an upward revision of the combined water allocation for the year 2020 from 23 Billion Cubic Meters to 27 Billion Cubic Meters.
He said in a statement that the Authority will continue to monitor the hydrological outlook for the Kariba Catchment and water levels at Kariba Dam and keep the public informed accordingly.
