By Anna Chibamu

Construction of the Batoka Hydro Power Plant on the Zambezi River along the Zimbabwe-Zambia border will start in 2017, a cabinet minister has revealed.

Energy and Power Development Minister, Samuel Undenge, last week told journalists in Harare that the feasibility studies are expected to be completed by June this year.

"The feasibility studies are going on very well and the joint project between Zimbabwe and Zambia will start next year as we look forward to add more megawatts to our national grid," said Undenge.
