Almost the entire Zambia is experiencing a blackout, a second in two weeks.
Power was cut around 18:45 Hours to all parts of Zambia except for Southern and Western Provinces.
As at 21: Hours all the affected areas were not restored with supply.
Energy Minister Dora Siliya confirmed that all parts of the country are in darkness except for the two provinces which are supplied by Victoria Falls station.
Mrs Siliya said the cause at the moment is unknown but it implies a fault at Kariba and Kafue which supply the provinces affected.
On December 10th 2015, the country suffered a similar power failure which plunged almost the entire nation into total darkness.
The cause of that incident was an overload on the Kariba system which caused the trippings at Kafue power station which feeds most of the country.
