Energy Minister warns against vandalisation

Minister of Energy Ibrahim Matola has described the act of vandalizing ESCOM equipment such as generators and cables as equal to economic subotage.

According to Matola, lives have been lost and economic livelihood is affected by the malpractice.

“Power supply to hospitals, affecting people on life support machines, water boards cannot supply water as required and small businesses such as maize mill cannot run properly due lack of power supply,” he said.
