The Patriotic Front Facebook page has claimed that the Zambian Government will increase electricity tariffs by17 percent. The page made the claim in a post on August 30 2022. Attached to the claim was the Government Green Paper on the findings and recommendations of the 2021 Electricity Cost of Service Study. This post attracted reactions from people who feel increasing electricity tariffs by 17% is not in line with the 2021 to 2026 UPND Party Manifesto. The manifesto states that one of the deliverables by UPND government is to ensure affordable and clean energy supply through the implementation of an ambitious Renewable Energy Investment Plan that will improve the energy mix and ensuring cost-reflective and steady tariffs that allow investors to continue investing in the sector.
