Zambian dictator Edgar Lungu has hallucinated that his government has not increased Zesco tariffs as people are putting it.
Speaking when he toured some seed production farm in Mkushi area on Tuesday, Lungu hallucinated that electricity tariffs have not been increased but that his government simply removed subsidies on electricity.
Zesco has increased electricity tariffs by 50 percent effective 1st May 2017 and will further increase by 25 percent by 1st September 2017 bring the increase percentage to 75 percent in a space of 4 months.
A number of economic analysts have warned that the rapid sharp increment in tariffs will choke the economy and domestic users.
‘People are saying Lungu has increased electricity but that is not true, we have simply removed subsidies,’ Lungu said.
