Zesco says filling of Kafue Gorge dam won’t reduce load shedding

Zesco says filling of Kafue Gorge dam won’t reduce load shedding

Now Zesco says even if the dam fills up, there will be no reduction in electricity loadshedding.
The entire PF regime and Zesco has been singing that once the Kafue Gorge power project is completed and the dam filled, electricity loadshedding will be a thing of the past.

Last week they even made the country endure 48 hours of darkness in the pretext that they want to fill the dam so that loadshedding can end or at least reduce drastically; but now that the dam has filled up, Zesco has started speaking in tongues

Listen to Zesco spokesperson Henry Kapata speaking this morning on Radio Phoenix.

He says load shedding will depend on this season’s rainfall and planning by engineers but that the filling of the day should not excite anyone as it has nothing to do with loadshedding

These people are so annoying ai.

    I am resident in South Africa, making trips to my country of birth, whenever possible. It heartens me to read & see when there, the upliftment of Zambians by their own bootstraps, expressing mature opinions like the comments above. How sad (as per one comment) that corruption at high levels, is negating what the folk are doing.
    Twice in recent years attempting to regain Zambian citizenship I have faced a wall raised by avarice, handing out about 27 thousand Kwacha with no result.
    Perhaps salaries are not being paid. I still love Zambia. May God bless you.

    Voting out the current regime is the only solution.
    After that let’s break Zesco monopoly of supplying power.

    These are criminals, they are selling electricity to other countries, those increased hours of load shedding they made millions of dollars for playing around the country bribing people and visionless chiefs who are politically inclined to pf when they are supposed to be non partisan. This regime is a crop of demn liers. What can you expect from them. I hear they are waiting for another presidencial Jet bought from Russia arriving somewhere in December but failing to pay the bamwankole… Your time of reckoning is nearing….

      If the commissioning of one of the generators at Kafue gorge lower hydro-power station will not decrease loadshedding. Then why is the government spending colosal sums of money constructing the generation station?

    It was Lungu himself that promised loadshedding would be over before the end of this year.
    He was lying through his teeth.
    Until you get your own solar system, the problem won’t go away!

    The Minister of energy’s fingers will be cut because he promised Zambians are eagerly waiting for March 2021.

      Me I said let’s just cut the finger off of that Minister’s hand and get him a prosthetic one in advance. PF guys are just too much. Tutwa has not stripped over Bill 10; Mwila has not resigned as SG over Roan election results… etc. etc.

    They are actually clueless and visionless dogs who do not deserve a minute in the corridors of the utility company. They probably can do better as garbage collectors. Stupid Idiots.
