EGENCO Warns of Reduced Power for Two Days
The Electricity Generation Company Malawi Limited (EGENCO) says it will reduce its power generation capacity at Tedzani Power Station this coming weekend.
EGENCO public relations officer Moses Gwaza has told Zodiak, that at that time, the institution will conduct maintenance from Saturday, 26th to 28th August.
The maintenance works according to Gwaza will also see the reduction of power generation at Nkula and Kapichira stations due to water reduction of water flow in Shire River.
"We are carrying out the works now, to ensure that intake screens are in perfect working condition before the rainy season," Gwaza said.
Executive director for the Consumers Association of Malawi (CAMA) John Kapito has expressed concerns on the development saying it will affect the welfare of consumers.
The development will bring fresh memories of frequent power cuts the country experienced, before things stabilized early this year.
Recently EGENCO emerged as the star performer among parastatals in Malawi.
