Gwaza added that this will mark as the second phase as the first six megawatts generators were installed in Mzuzu.

“These gensets are different from those installed in Mzuzu because these ones will be installed in a power house unlike Mzuzu generators which can be installed anywhere since they are containerized,” he said.

According to Gwaza, the country will soon witness arrival of five more generators producing 10 megawatts and they shall be installed in the capital Lilongwe following the first and the second phases of Mzuzu and Blantyre respectively.

Last year, non-governmental organization took to the streets to protest against persistent blackouts the country has been struggling with.
