especially zambia the country is facing its worst drought in years but the lack of rainfall has also affected its capacity to produce electricity by june this year water levels down the world's biggest manmade reservoir were down to a 3rd of what it was last year that forced the zambian government to implement some drastic measures since october zambians have been putting up with 15 hours of rolling blackouts a day to try to conserve whatever energy can be produced for the mining sector and while that could help protect the main source of exports the power cuts are hurting the productivity of workers the majority of zambians work in the informal sector. to talk about that my colleague is here to ponder gene bay 2. there's loads of. loads and loads of load shedding rolling blackouts for ordinary energy consumers what else is the government doing to try to solve this problem what they are doing
7:18 pm
they're really like running at a 3rd of capacity they can only produce a 3rd of what they need at peak demand so that's a huge deficit of power for the country and the solution at least that was announced by the main electricity supply is asco was to imports electricity for south africa for 6 months that's a great idea $22000000.00 great idea just explain to viewers why that's such a great great idea because of africa as it has its own energy is and we really don't know if that's even sustainable at all also we have to factor in the fact that he has a huge debt to g.d.p. ratio so buying energy from another country is by no means a good decision they have a currency a depreciation problem so buying in dollars also puts them at a huge disadvantage so there's a whole range of problems that the country has with electricity and its economy that if you put together a just not to work into it so that it's advantage and obviously a problem scraping together the funds to. just in what really needs to invest in
7:19 pm
why hasn't it invested in the 1st place in say the g.t.a. well it has been and the way it has been there's been a lot of announcements but of course we don't know if the money's really going where it should there was a $4000000000.00 hydro power project announced by both zambia and zimbabwe in the summer and that would be on the river which the 2 countries they are in both sides of the river and it's on the talk of gorges supposed to be built by general electric and china power but that's of course not going to be something we can see from you know from night and day that it changes overnight going to happen so it's a long term project there's another one also at another river in zambia a few a gorge but that's something that's been hold was being built by a tiny's constructor and we don't know why that hydro power project of worth $2000000000.00 by the way was hold there's no reason why so we don't know if it's related to the drought going on or if there were just issues with the project specifications with the chinese a constructor it was old a little bit of

a hush hush thing what about in some of the other countries like south africa which we mentioned before. that's been going on for a really long time now it's problems with electricity and i guess that's going to be with them for quite some time what. the whole region has problems spoken about so the african we've spoken about zimbabwe of course as well the major problem major problem is the energy mix of these countries if you look at zambia it depends on 85 percent of its power coming from hydro power and it's investing in hydropower more hydro power and yet it should be probably doing more to invest in other power sources which would enable it to be a bit more diversified so that i solo for example is solar or wind or just other energy sources which enable more diversification and less dependence and the same could be said of south africa it's relies on 90 percent coal energy and that's also a problem so diversification is the big board here obviously surely
