Vice President Inonge Wina says ZESCO electricity tariffs are not going to be increased, owing to the current challenges that the power utility company is facing.
Mrs. Wina says the tariffs will not increase for now as ZESCO is still working on modalities to increase productivity.
She says government does not want Zambians to bear the cost of the problems that ZESCO is going through.
Mrs. Wina was responding to a question from Mpongwe MP Gabriel Namulambe who wanted to know whether ZESCO will increase its electricity tariffs during the Vice President’s question Time.
And Mrs. Wina says complaints that ZESCO management is corrupt are mere perception.
She says those that feel they have evidence of corruption at ZESCO should report to the Anti Corruption Commission -ACC- and other relevant authorities so that the power utility can be investigated.
Mrs. Wina was responding to a question from Lubansenshi MP Patrick Mucheleka who alleged that there was corruption at ZESCO.
