The Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (Escom) is this Â expected to resume power generation at Tedzani Power Station after it was temporarily closed over the Easter holiday.
Escom public relations manager Kitty Chingota told the media during a tour of the station on Friday that the corporation commissioned the rehabilitation work on Easter since most companies had a break.
â€œWe know we have lost revenue by halting power generation, but such repairs are crucial to Escom. We closed Tedzani on Friday and Sunday and will resume on Monday [today] so that most parts of the country receive power,â€ he said.
The exercise involved removing weeds and silt from the Shire River.
â€œWhat we want is to ensure that Malawians have power; hence, the decision to work on the machines,â€ said Chingota.
