Zambians told to brace themselves for power load shedding.

Water levels at the Kariba North Bank have critically gone down, posing a threat on the power generation for the whole country.

Energy and Water Development Deputy Minister, Charles Zulu confirmed this to Breeze News.

Mr. Zulu explained that any time soon, the country will be experiencing load shedding because the generation of power at the Kariba North Bank will reduce.

He however, says that government is working on an inter connector project with other neighbouring countries so that Zambia can generate power from other countries when there is a deficit.

He added that a 166 million United States dollar project has already been approved to connect North-Western Province to the national grid.

Mr. Zulu says that most areas that are using generators will be connected to the national grid.
