The Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (ESCOM) Limited is apologising to its valued customers in some parts of the Central and Northern regions for loss of electricity supply that they are experiencing.
The problem has resulted from a 132kV line that tripped at Nkhotakota at around 7:53am today.
As a result, the following areas are off supply: Dwangwa, Chintheche, Nkhata Bay, Mzuzu, Luwinga, Mzimba, Lundazi, Chikangawa, Rumphi, Ekwendeni, Enukweni, Bwengu, Livingstonia, Chitipa and surrounding areas.
We, however, managed to supply parts of Karonga, Songwe, Uliwa and Chilumba from Wovwe Power Station at 8:55am.
Our engineers are on the ground to solve the problem.
ESCOM sincerely regrets any inconvenience this problem may have caused.>
