Power outages have been reported nationwide as of Tuesday, September 24, with daily power cuts lasting about eight hours due to an ongoing severe drought, affecting hydropower stations. Although the government has announced it will import electricity from South Africa, it remains unclear when the situation will be resolved. Related protests remain possible.
Individuals in Zambia are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities, and keep battery-operated devices fully charged whenever possible.
