The assessment meeting, which was conducted by Association of Early Childhood Development in Malawi ( AECDM), was done last week Friday at Mount Soche Hotel in Blantyre.

Kalondolondo Programme Manager, Jephter Mwanza said it was quite disappointing for Escom’s not to come to the meeting despite being invited.

“We tried our best to send invitation letters, even to their chief executive officer but we got a lame excuse at the eleventh hour that they are on holiday. We do believe all the people at Escom were on a holiday. Bosses at Escom should not run this company as a private entity because this is a public entity and they are accountable to Malawians,” said Mwanza.

Mwanza said Escom should answer different complaints from Malawians contained in the assessment report, which was conducted in Blantyre district.

“This is not their company and they must know that we will not allow this kind of a behaviour to continue,” said Mwanza.

Commenting on the assessment results, which were conducted in Blantyre, Mwanza said the major results shows that people are not satisfied with power supply.

He said the effects of persistent blackouts are quite serious in Blantyre city and urged the sole electricity provider to improve their services.

The report presented by Cecilia Kapalamula from AECDM rated Escom poor in rendering services because of consistently frequent black outs.

Yes escom, f**k you! I am surprised that your offices are not getting burned down. Time for the government to hire some international professionals to help out. Or are we content with being the poorest country in the world? Can we get over the post-colonial trauma and start being Malawians please?

A economy depends on you, yet nobody rebels against your incompetence. Is Malawi getting used to being abused?
