After enjoying three months of almost uninterrupted electricity, people in the country should now expect the return of prolonged power cuts.
The Electricity Generation Company Limited (Egenco) has said the country will start experiencing days without power soon.
Kapichira Hydro-Power Acting Station Manager Harry Msosa revealed this during a tour which Parliamentary Committee on Natural Resources conducted on Saturday.
Msosa said this will be the case due to low water levels in Lake Malawi and Shire River which are the main sources of electric power.
He further pointed out that the generation of electricity will be stabilized during the start of next rainy season, thus end of the month of October.
Egenco has since forewarned Malawians to brace for the said frequent electricity blackouts.
Meanwhile, some parts of the commercial city of Blantyre have already started experiencing blackouts but the power cuts are not taking longer.
