Prime Minister of Tanzania, Kassim Majaliwa, has announced the shut down of five hydroelectric stations in the country, in order to reduce excess electricity in the national grid.

According to Mr Majaliwa, the main plant, which is Mwalimu Nyerere Hydroelectric Station, alone has already generated enough electricity to power major cities, including the country’s main commercial hub, Dar es Salaam.

The BBC quoted an official of Tanesco, the power company run by the country as saying that, “We have turned off all these stations because the demand is low and the electricity production is too much, we have no allocation now.”

The 2,115 megawatt Julius Nyerere Hydropower Dam is almost full with water.
