ENERGY MINISTER EXPLAINS CURRENT POWER CUTS
By Patricia Male

Energy Minister Peter Kapala says the current power outages being experienced in some parts of Lusaka is due to Zesco dilapidated infrastructure and not load shedding.

Mr. Kapala says the low water levels at the Kariba Dam have had no impact on power generation and it is therefore wrong to suggest that the current power outages being experienced is load shedding.

He explains that Zesco infrastructure is currently strained but has assured that once the new Zesco charges are approved, infrastructure will improve and power outages will be curbed.

Mr. Kapala adds that this will allow Zesco to buy new equipment to improve on service delivery because the power utility will have liquidity.

  1. It’s not only in lusaka having power cuts but other towns as well. How come before there were no power cuts with the same dilapidated structures. Stop lying just admit there is a power deficit and solve the problem. South Africa had gone to stage 4 loadshedding.

  2. Wrong minister for Energy!
    Too bad for those who still put their hope in the National grid!
    Electricity will continue getting expensive!
    The best investment one can make today is an off the grid energy system.
