(2015-08-12) Zambia’s Energy Minister Christopher Yaluma said the country has started importing 100 mega watts of electricity from Mozambique to help mitigate the power deficit the country is currently experiencing.

Mr. Yaluma also said talks have advanced of the possible import of more power from other countries that have a surplus to cushion the power deficit.

He said the government is also planning to construct more power generation plants to cushion the current power deficit.

Mr Yaluma was speaking in an interview with journalists in Kasempa.

The Minister said government is aware that some traders are exploiting the Zambian people by selling generators at highs costs.

Mr. Yaluma said it is regrettable that unsuspecting citizens are being exploited even after government waived duty on power products.

The Minister however, said the power utility ZESCO, will soon start selling power products at a cheaper cost.
