The complex housing ZESA Mpopoma sub-station is currently burning with the Bulawayo Fire Brigade on scene but completely ill-equipped and uncertain of how to handle the flame.
Mpopoma Zesa Sub Station catches fire
Posted by Ezra Tshisa Sibanda on Tuesday, 7 February 2017
Dark smoke is seen coming from doors, windows and air vents, ZESA staff, security and Fire teams are casually and without any sense of urgency walking about in clear contravention of Health and safety. A number of fire fighters are seen reluctant to access the building.
Zesa has declined to comment, instructing all staff on site not to respond to any questions. Mpopoma Sub Station supplies Matshobana, Njube, Mpopoma, part of Magwewe, Luveve and surronding suburbs
