Government says the current electricity load shedding will end in two years.
Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili says claims by the opposition UPND to end load shedding are based on government’s program to commission power projects.
Dr Kambwili who is also Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services says the opposition have nothing new to tell the Zambian people.
And Dr Kambwili says UPND Vice President administration Geofrey Mwamba’s claims that his party will negotiate with owners of Luanshya’ s Baluba Mine and Nchanga underground mine on the possible re-opening of the two mines are not sincere.
He says it is currently not possible to run the mines on a sustainable basis because they are high cost mines.
Dr Kambwili was speaking at a media briefing in Lusaka.
