Energy Generation Company (Egenco), the company established to generate power,  says there had been massive power cuts across the country because water levels at Tedzani were lowered to help recover bodies of four children who had drowned in Shire river.

In a statement, Egenco says this means the company remained with only one machine on load at Tedzani 111 while all machines were at standstill at Tedzani 1 and 11.

“All four bodies have since been recovered and we are now building the pond to resume running of the machines that are at standstill,” says Egenco.

Six children went playing in Shire river at the upstream side of Tedzani power station pond early Sunday afternoon when four of the children, aged between two to four drowned.

What on earth were these children doing at a dangerous place like that? Where were their careless parents? Do es ENGECO have security system at the ponds? We see more and well paid security guards at ESCOM offices, so what about at the generating stations?
