Blackout disrupted parliamentary proceedings on Tuesday.

Lights went out in the House when Minister of Health Atupele Muluzi was responding to questions directed to his ministry.

Power outage hits parliament.

Among the questions was one from Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislator for Thyolo Thava Mary Navicha who asked the ministry of health what it was doing to resolve challenges her constituents are facing to access healthcare services.

But as Muluzi was responding to the question darkness engulfed the House.

Later light returned in the chamber and Deputy Speaker of Parliament Esther Mcheka-Chilenje apologised to the Members of Parliament over the incident.

“Parliament is yet to find the cause of the power outage and we hope this will end soon,” said Chilenje.

This is not the first time for this to happen.

Recently, power went out when Leader of Opposition Rt Hon Lazarus Chakwera was commenting on President Peter Mutharika’s address.

  7. A herbalist in Africa has been curing lots of HIV patients using natural herbs. He has on countless occasions after curing patients presented lab results both positive and negative, together with the cured person. I never knew there was a cure to HIV until my sister was cured from the virus by Dr Farin after four years of battling the virus with ARV. She took his herbal medicine for some weeks and when she went for a test she was diagnosed to be negative. You can contact the doctor on WhatsApp or call +2348147299781
