ZESCO Limited will start load management between 18:30 to 21:00 hours in some parts of the country effective this evening until November 7th 2021.

ZESCO Senior Corporate Affairs Manager JOHN KUNDA said the load management is as a result of two generating units that have been taken out.

Dr KUNDA says one generating unit has been taken out at Kariba North Bank extension.

He further said the other generating unit under repair has been taken out at Kafue gorge Upper.

Dr KUNDA said the generating unit that has been taken out at Kafue gorge Upper is the one that was responsible for the national black out that the country experienced on October 8th, 2021.

He said the utility company’s engineers after carrying out detailed investigations have isolated the problem and are working to restore the unit.

Dr KUNDA told Journalists at a Media Briefing in Lusaka today that the impact of the load management will only be at peak hours.

He said after taking out the two units there is a power deficit of two hundred and fifty mega Watts.

Dr KUNDA said ZESCO currently can NOT get power from independent power producers like Mamba collieries Limited and Ndola Energy.

He said the utility Company is only able to get one hundred and thirty from Mamba because one unit is on annual maintenance while Ndola Energy doesn’t have fuel to generate power.
