Zimbabwe Electricity Transmission and Distribution Company(ZETDC) has urged its customers to pay attention to social media spreading falsehoods that it was increasing electricity tariffs by 150% starting 15th of March 2019.
“ZETDC would like to express its concern over the malicious social media messages that are urging consumers to buy electricity in bulk in order to beat a purported 150% increase in the price of power” said ZETDC.
ZETDC said their valued customers were being misled into panic buying by the social media and they should not take news from its first hand before being publicly informed by the right platforms of media.
“The power utility urges consumers to disregard the misleading social media messages that are creating unnecessary panic buying and inconvenience to consumers” said ZETDC.
The ZETDC regretted the inconveniences which were made by the social media to their customers.
