Zambia Halts Electricity Exports to Neighbouring Countries (News Central TV)

The Zambian government has announced the halting of electricity exports to some neighbouring countries due to reduced power generation capacity the southern African country was facing.

Minister of Energy Peter Kapala, however, said the government will not completely do away with exports in order to maintain existing power markets, the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation, the state broadcaster, quoted him as saying.

The minister said that the government was alive to the disruptions caused by the ongoing load shedding but was cautious to ensure that there was no complete shutdown of the electricity supply.

The government was working on bringing on board other power producers such as the 5 MW Ndola Energy Power Plant in Copperbelt Province and the fifth 120 MW generator at the Kafue Lower Gorge Power Station.
