Zambians Now Used to Load-Shedding – Zesco

zesco-electricity-zambia-reportsZesco says electricity consumers are now used to load shedding such that they are mistaking electrical faults to load shedding.

Zesco public relations officer Yammy Zimba has since advised the public to make a clear distinction between load shedding and faults. She said some consumers have not been reporting electrical faults but instead mistake such for load shedding.

She said ZESCO is now considering the publicizing the load shedding schedule that will contain updated information to the public to follow the programme.

And Zimba has also said ZESCO has reconnected a generator at Kafue Gorge Power Station which was down causing widespread load shedding in Lusaka and other towns.

The breakdown of two generators at Kafue Gorge and Kariba North Bank led to a national blackout due to frequent load shedding.

She said the other generator at Kariba North Bank will be reconnected by Wednesday this week.
