CEC’s Hanson Sindowe dies

General News CEC’s Hanson Sindowe dies

Prominent Businessman Hanson Sindowe has passed away.

Mr. Sindowe was until his death the Executive Chairman of Copperbelt Energy Corporation (CEC).

He had been Chairman of the CEC board since 2006, when Zam-En, a company he co-founded and was Managing Director of, obtained the majority shareholding of CEC.

At the time of his retirement from CEC in 2018, Mr Sindowe served the Company as its Non-Executive Board Chairman. Prior, he held several senior management portfolios in ZCCM including as General Manager of the ZCCM Power Division, the predecessor of CEC.

Among the notable achievements under his leadership was the listing of CEC on the Lusaka Securities Exchange in 2008, enabling many Zambians, now numbering more than 4500, to own shares in the Company. He received his Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering and Management at the University of Zambia, and a degree in Senior Management from Penn State University.

Mr. Sindowe was an ardent soccer fan and until his retirement served as the Patron of Power Dynamos Football Club.

  2. A death news item should include cause of death. Anyway, since CEC is a public limited company, the company secretary should issue a public notice on this death. Perhaps news consumers will be better informed whn the statement from CEC comes out.

  3. Oh God 2021 is a cursed year. Lesa sure why take such a great man who contributed to our country immensely. Why not take the lives of upnd diasporans who are a waste of space and oxygen. Oh God wash your blood all over us and protect us

  4. These are the individuals were it is appropriate to say ‘he run a good race’. Legacy defined. Not were we have to begin redefining ‘legacy’ just so that it fits the individual.

  6. I went to school with one of his kids… brilliant man. Kaizer Zulu be careful what you wish for and PLEASE REFRAIN from using God’s name in vain. What has diaspora or those living abroad… done to your bloody head…? I ask? If HH wins, I will encourage my educated and hard working Zambian people to go back to Zambia to help rebuild our beautiful country. KZ ECL is not a humble man, he ignored the church’s advice and their take on the dubious cybercrime bill now Law. Today Bishop Lungu has vindicated my words and in the future I have for Zambia. Bishop Lungu should be highly commended by all Zambians. He is straight man and of integrity

  7. “Hanson Sindowe has passed on” – st sentence by LT.

    But excuse me its clouds pass,food passes thru human body but PEOPLE DIE they don’t pass.

  8. It’s indeed a great loss. Hanson presided over a company with excellent efficiency. CEC is able to wheel power to the Copperbelt at 2% transmission loss while ZESCO does it at 20%. If you don’t understand what I mean, here is a fact. At the time Zesco was producing 1500mega watts against the required 2200, Bwalya N’gandu paid Eskom US$20M to import 300mega watts to help mitigate the shortfall. However what he didn’t know was that 20% of 1500 was 300, so that money just went to cover Zesco wheeling losses. In the meantime CEC declared dividends in the same amount in the same year! Can you see what hard work and efficiency can do? Instead of learning something from it they began to fight CEC, what kind of people are these? Zesco is in 9 provinces yet they want to blame CEC which only…

  9. CEC which operates in 1 province only. Zambia is not short of capable citizens except we have entrusted leadership to dunderheads.

  10. If Sindowe resurrected and read this what LT wrote, he would sue and shut down Lusaka Times for good.
