National Democratic Congress Leader Chishimba Kambwili says Government is not serious in addressing the power deficit that the country is facing.

And Dr. Kambwili has challenged Government to state the exact position on the much talked about Zesco/Eskom deal.

Dr Kambwili said the Zesco/Eskom deal seems to be a none starter because of conflicting statements coming out of Eskom in South Africa and Zesco management.

Earlier this week, Eskom officials told authorities in South Africa that they had shelved intentions of exporting power to other SADC countries including Zambia because they too are facing a power deficit.

Dr. Kambwili is urging Government to find a pragmatic approach immediately to hand the acute power shortage.

He has also challenged Zambians to be proactive and speak out on issues affecting them.

Meanwhile, Dr. Kambwili has advised President Edgar Lungu to discipline his political advisor Kaizer Zulu following latest assault allegations involving the controversial State House aide.

    • Mr. Kambwili, we the citizens think this deal with ESKOM is dodgy (like many other deals done by this PF).

      Is there a way to find out exactly from ESKOM what the deal was? How much was paid?

      The only way load shedding would end in Zambia is if state house, and KZ’s houses, and those 48 houses, are subjected to the same 20 hour a day load shedding like the rest of the citizens.

      Sharon, before you ask “how will State house function in the dark?”, let me tell you now that there is no work that State house does.

  1. “Eskom officials told authorities in South Africa that they had shelved intentions of exporting power to other SADC countries including Zambia because they too are facing a power deficit.”

    But $27million went and confirmed by government – to nowhere. This is serious stealing. Where did the money go to? No wonder there is no change in load shedding hours if anything it has just worsened. It is clear for all to see and feel that $27million did not go anywhere after all. Some people are just smiling all the way to their banks. My Lord what wrong did we do to this thieving government????
    Instead of improving load shedding we are shading tears
    Disaster!!!!!

    • Do you have proof that Eskom has been paid this money?

      The money might have left the treasury, but it might actually be sitting in a minister’s account, waiting to be shared among Lungu, Tasila, Chitotela and Mr. Kapata.
