Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika summoned the two statutory corporations top management so that they could brief him why power outages are persisting regardless of various projects lined-up to mitigate the problem.

The two institutions informed the President that they are still working on meeting the demand of power supply in the country.

President Mutharika has further directed that the two institutions should do anything possible to ensure that they add not less than 105 Megawatts to the country's power grid before the end of the year.
