Minister Ibrahim Matola in tears over blackouts


Minister of Energy Ibrahim Matola had an emotional breakdown as he addressed members of the press in Lilongwe.

He cried over what he has termed as possible sabotage, political influence or a mere case of negligence.

He was commenting on what he calls negligence, incompentence and alleged maladministration happening at the utility companies due to political interference at ESCOM and EGENCO.

Mainly, the tears came immediately after his comment on revelations that ESCOM paid K30 million for purchasing land which doesn’t exist.

The country continues suffering the harsh impact of persistent blackouts; pushing most already struggling business operations on their knees.

Meanwhile, Matola’s tears have attracted mixed reactions on the social media.
