The country has once again been plunged into total darkness, barely a week after suffering another power disaster.
But the government says it does not even know what has caused this latest man made tragedy.
The outage has also disrupted mobile and Internet services especially on Zamtel.
Dora Siliya who now speaks for PF and Zesco while enjoying herself in her mansion lit with powerful generators posted the following statement.
I wish to confirm that all parts of the country off electricity power supply except for Southern and Western provinces supplied by Victoria falls station.
The cause at the moment is unknown but it implies a fault at Kariba and kafue which supply the provinces affected.
Will update as soon as I can
