Hakainde Hichilema, the current President of Zambia, has made significant changes in the country in just 530 days in office. One of the major changes he has brought about is the end of power rationing in Zambia. This change has been a long-awaited relief for the people of Zambia who have been suffering from widespread blackouts and load shedding for a long time.

Victor Mapani, the Managing Director of Zesco Ltd, Zambia’s power utility, announced the end of power rationing at a press briefing on Thursday. He said that households and companies countrywide will now enjoy 24 hours of power supply without any disruptions. This has been made possible by various measures that have been taken by the government.

One of the major measures was the restoration and upgrading of power generation at various power stations in the country. The Victoria Falls power station has been revamped and is currently feeding about 20 MW into the national grid. Two other stations have also been upgraded, increasing their power generation by over 150 MW. The government also plans to increase power generation at Lake Kariba from the current 250 MW to 350 MW.

The blackouts and load shedding were caused by low water levels at the Kariba Dam, which is used for hydroelectric generation, and routine maintenance works at Maamba Collieries. The government has taken measures to address these issues, resulting in the end of power rationing.

The end of power rationing has been a significant change for the people of Zambia. It will boost the country’s economy by providing a stable power supply to businesses and households. The power rationing had severely impacted the economy, causing significant losses for businesses and reduced productivity. With a stable power supply, businesses can operate more efficiently, and households can carry out their daily activities without any interruptions.

In addition to ending power rationing, President Hakainde Hichilema has also made several other changes in the country. He has implemented policies to promote economic growth, reduce poverty, and create jobs for the people of Zambia. He has also launched several infrastructure projects to improve transportation and communication networks in the country.
