Electricidade de Mozambique’s (EDM) CEO, Manuel Cuambe, announced on Wednesday that the national power utility would invest $289-million in electrification programmes by 2013.
Cuambe was speaking as EDM presented its 2009 annual report and its 2010 working programme.
He would not be drawn on where the funding had come from.
The utility planned to use the money for electrification programmes covering 115 districts.
Mozambique has one of the lowest electricity connections rates from its national grid in the Southern African region.
The utility's customers had increased their payment rate from 96% in 2008 to 97% in 2009, he said.
