IN 12 MONTHS AFTER TAKING OVER GOVERNMENT, THERE WILL BE NO MORE LOADSHEDDING SAYS HICHILEMA
United Party for National Development President Hakainde Hichilema says when his Party forms Government in 2021, in 12 months time there will be no more loadshedding.
Mr. Hichilema says it is heartless to loadshed Entrepreneurs for more than 15 hours everyday because they don’t make any earns meat.
He says he will among other agent issues prioritise the Energy sector to ensure that there is no Loadshedding in Zambia.
Mr. Hichilema says for those doubting thomases, he will install a Solar Plant worthy US$23 Million to produce 3000 Megawatts instead of buying a Presidential Jet costing US$100 million dollars.
He says if the Presidential jet that is not helping masses can be sold and use the money to install solar plants that can supply power the entire Lusaka and Copperbelt, then loadshedding can be the issue of the past.
Mr. Hichilema further says that he will bring a second competitor to ZESCO to insure that people can have options on which company to supply them with power.
“We are nolonger in the old age stone, we need to be a developed country. How is Saudi Arabia producing power despite it being in a desert? Have you asked yourself that question? The issue here is that we can’t be having Loadshedding after 53 years of independence” he said.
“Zambia has so much potential to develop, but to ensure that we mean business, we in the UPND will end Loadshedding in 12 months, we will install solar plants which are not costly like the Presidential jet. Also we will bring a second or even third investor in Zambia so that it can be competitive and people can have good services” he stated.
