Govt to increase electricity by 100% again

 

The PF regime will increase power tariffs by 100% as the government seeks more costly imports to make up for a shortfall from its drought-hit hydropower dams, miniter of energy Matthew Nkhuwa says.

“I think it will be maybe double the amount, because we are paying half the amount that we are supposed to pay for electricity in Zambia,” Nkhuwa told reporters in Lusaka, the capital, when asked by how much the government may increase prices.

The past two years the government has been increasing power tariffs while claiming that the money will be used to end load-shedding.
