President Edgar Lungu has said Zambia wants to reduce the dominance of Zesco and attract more private investment into the power sector as he inaugurated the 47.5MW Bangweulu solar independent power plant in the Lusaka South Multi-Facility Economic Zone.“For a long time, the electricity company (Zesco) held on to a time when it was the only player in the energy sector, expecting to do all the generation projects. However, the electricity company should be ready for other investors to venture into energy generation,” Lungu said in remarks at the 11 March launch ceremony.
