RESTARTING NDOLA ENERGY COMPANY FOR THE SECOND TIME IN TWO MONTHS

By Peter Sinkamba
Two months ago, Government announced that it had restarted generation of electricity using diesel and has put 105 megawatts on the national grid.

Energy Minister Peter Kapala said in an interview that the company commenced the production of electricity last week (April 2024).

“We have restarted electricity generation at Ndola Energy, for now we are using diesel though it is slightly on the expensive side but very soon we will start importing Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO),” he said.

I have noted from Dr. Brian Mushimba post that again the same project will be restarted tomorrow at a ceremony to be graced by Copperbelt Minister Elisha Matambo, Energy Minister Peter Kapala and Information Minister Cornelius Mweetwa.

Just wondering what’s going on!

This is what happened here. The generators were on full trial running to ensure it was producing the required power without causing any adverse effects. Don’t do politics with everything. If you don’t understand something please ask. There are a lot of people who can help you understand.

    • Absolutely true my brother. Unfortunately when politics becomes a spirit, some people stop using their brains hence begins to wonder even on simple matters; as the spirit leads…
