Stop exporting power, Zambians no longer living but surviving – Mundubile
By NATION REPORTER
LEADER of the Opposition in Parliament Brian Mundubile has urged the new dawn
administration to immediately stop exporting power.
Mr Mundubile who is also PF Presidential candidate explained that the move could reduce the
hours of loadsheding to save the small-scale businesses country wide.
The PF Mporokoso Member of Parliament revealed that lawmakers received the news of
loadsheding from the Minister of Energy on the floor of the House with great sadness.
Mr. Mundubile said this was especially that the economy of the country was performing poorly
adding that people were no longer living but barely surviving.
“We are talking about people that run saloons, barbershops and small welding shops among
others that are barely surviving. Six hours of loadsheding kills off these businesses completely,”
Mr. Mundubile added that the decision to begin exporting electricity was premature.
Mr. Mundubile said that the indications he was getting were that there was a pre-alert to Zesco
regarding the challenge of low levels of water but that it delayed to take action.
