The Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority (ZESA) has scaled up its fight against theft and vandalism on its infrastructure through offering rewards to whistle blowers who successfully expose criminals behind the rampant acts.

In a weekend statement by its subsidiary Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company (ZETDC), the company invited citizens to volunteer valuable information that would lead to successful prosecutions.

The company linked some recurrent power outages and load shedding to increased vandalism and thefts. ZESA public relations manager, Fullard Gwasira told on Sunday that the authority had moved to offer rewards in a bid to support other related efforts aimed at curbing vandalism.
