ESCOM, Parliament Crash On Power Price

By Suleman Chitera Aug21,2022

Parliamentary Committee on Natural Resources and Climate Change chairperson Welani Chilenga and two other people in the energy sector have disputed claims by the Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (Escom) chief executive officer Kamkwamba Kumwenda that the organisation is buying power at K140 per kilowatt per hour (kwh).

In an interview on Thursday, Chilenga wondered where Escom is getting its figures because according to his understanding, the power utility organisation is buying electricity at an average of K59.2 per kwh, and not K140 as Kumwenda said during a press briefing on Wednesday last week.

Said Chilenga: “I was wondering where Escom is getting is figures, and how it has arrived at those figures. It is not true that Escom is buying electricity at K140; that is not true.”
