SPEAKER of National Assembly Patrick Matibini on Tuesday told Parliament that Minister of Mines, Energy and Water Development Christopher Yaluma will this week issue a ministerial statement on the ongoing countrywide load shedding of power.
Dr Matibini said this after Chadiza member of Parliament Allan Mbewe (MMD) raised a point of order on whether Government was in order to keep quite while there is massive load shedding.
“Why is the minister quite when load shedding has gone to the worst?” Mr Mbewe asked.
In response, Dr Matibini said the minister has been communicating with his office over the matter.
“According to our business, I’m expecting a statement either tomorrow [today] or at the very latest Friday. So it is a matter that is receiving attention,” Dr Matibini said.
