Zesco to Increase Electricity Tariffs

The Energy Regulation Board has given Zesco the right to increase electricity tariffs by 24%.

The power utility company had written to ERB to request an increment and their request has been granted across all sectors except the mines.

Zambians have endured sustained prices increases and the increase of electricity tariffs will put further pressure on the spending power of the citizenry already grappling with price rises in mealie meal, fuel and other general commodities.
