A 28 year old ZESCO employee has died after being electrocuted by electricity which was switched on as his was fixing a fault during load shedding.
Paul Kasongo 28, was sent to fix a power fault with his colleagues at a time when Makeni was scheduled to have load shedding yesterday.
But ZESCO is trying at all cost to hide information of them having killed their own employee with electricity shock because they do not want to compensate the family.
But Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo told Zambian Watch that Kasongo was yesterday 11th July, 2019 at about 1200 hours electrocuted to death.
Ms. Katongo said this was after ZESCO forgot they sent people to work on a fault an switched on the line back to live while the deceased was on the poll holding a high voltage cable which roasted him in 20 seconds.
It is reported that the electrocution happened at Deniz Block Company near Sangala Police Post as he was repairing a fault.
The body is in UTH mortuary awaiting postmortem.
