Scores of Zambians have been forced to sleep in darkness as a result of a technical challenge with Zesco’s prepaid vending system which has made it difficult for customers to purchase credit onto their meters.
The unfortunate development has compelled Zambians to take to social media to express their frustration.
The technical challenge occurred at about 13:00hrs on Saturday, November 11, 2023.
In a statement issued by the Corporate Affairs Department of Zesco Limited, the power distribution company said it was doing everything possible to resolve the technical problem and restore the vending system at the earliest time possible.
“Zesco regrets the inconvenience caused to its valued customers,” the company said.
