Dear All


This notice serves to inform the communities downstream and all the stakeholders that the Zambezi River Authority shall be closing the Kariba Dam floodgates, one at a time, after the Easter break from Tuesday next week.  The shut- down will be conducted as follows:


DAY                         DATE               TIME


FIRST GATE   :              TUESDAY                2nd April           AT 12.00HOURS

SECOND GATE:              WEDNESDAY,         3rd April            AT 12.OO HOURS



The Authority has taken into consideration the likely effects of a sudden withdrawal, hence the 24 hour spread.  We sincerely hope that the disruptions to any operations on and along the Zambezi River will be minimal.


The Zambezi River Authority would like to thank you all in advance for you continued co-operation. Happy holidays.



Kind Regards
