Issue 435 - 25 Mar 2021

Attorney General Likando Kalaluka has started the process of appealing the 26 February ruling by the High Court that energy minister Matthew Nkhuwa had acted illegally by declaring the Copperbelt Energy Corporation (CEC) network common carrier. On 5 March, the government obtained an ex-parte order restraining CEC from enforcing the ruling.
