Chief executive officer of the newly-formed Electricity Generation Company (Egenco), I would appreciate that the unbundling of the Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (Escom) raised hopes for an end to incessant power blackouts affecting the country .
If I were Bwana Liabunya, I would realise that the onus is on my team to prove to Malawians that ndizotheka (it is possible task) and Egenco can turn things around
Oh yes, I would realise Malawians are now tired of hearing about jaw-breaking jargons about the causes of persistent power supply shortage and what they want is an end to the power problems. If I were Liabunya, I would remember that this is precisely the reason I am at the helm—to provide solutions.
As rightly observed by the Minister of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining Bright Msaka, the expectation is that Egenco will be proactive and develop strategies to prevent emerging problems.
I would also realise that as an independent power producer, it is imperative that Egenco should have running machines all the time so as to produce more power, and in turn, sell more.
That is if only I were the Egenco CEO. But I am not. n
