Nankhumwa tells Chakwera to quickly address frequent power outages


Leader of Opposition in Parliament, Kondwani Nankhumwa has asked President Lazarus Chakwera to rise up to the occasion by coming up with an action plan to address the current power outages that are causing a lot of suffering to Malawians and crippling the private sector.

Nankhumwa says Malawians trusted president Chakwera to power with an expectation for a better life, hence, he should stop blaming the mistakes of a past regime but work to transform Malawi.

“The reality on the ground is that Malawians are suffering as far as issues regarding energy in the country are concerned,” says Nankhumwa.

He adds: “I am looking at small scale businesses that use electricity; we have chicken farmers that have got incubators, we have welders, we have barber shops, we have salons and several others that are failing to make profits because of frequent blackouts.”

The call comes barely a few days after President Chakwera tasked the Minister of Energy to probe the frequent blackouts, with the joint parliamentary committee doing the same.
