dude i live in Kalubowila, wat else proof u need? :P
 Yea perhaps...



Depends on where in kalubowila.. If its near the hospital you're ok, but if not then you're screwed. I live in kalubowila (away from the hospital) and had a crap share of these cuts owing to an upgrade in infrastructure - as in I could see the guys working to re-wire some of the pylons. Didn't notice anything for the past week though.

48% of the power is from fossil fuel .probably not from a water issue. not sure though because the duration of rains have been lowered.

Yup those are the ones. But they're happening everywhere owing to upgrades on the infrastructure apparently. They are doing this one area at a time.

That kinda explains it too - coal power plant is having trouble

and 45% of our power is produced through hydropower. Hence the lack in electricity
