Some Ndola residents have appealed to the Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation to reconsider entering into long-term payment plans for new electricity installations. The residents said that the people who have constructed new houses are finding difficulty in having electricity connected to their houses because of high connectivity charges.
One resident said that Zambia Electricity Supply Corporation (ZESCO) should come up with a long-term payment plan for all those who are wishing to have electricity connected to their newly built houses. Another resident said that electricity connection charges were just too much for the ordinary Zambian to afford.
ZESCO has been urged to revise the charges or introduce a payment plan that would allow residents to have electricity connected to their houses before they finish paying the whole amount, as reported by Lusaka Times.
