Matola takes anti-vandalism campaign to SADC

Minister of Energy, Ibrahim Matola, has urged SADC member states to tackle the issue of electricity infrastructure vandalism by working together to curb the malpractice.

Matola made the remarks at the 42nd joint meeting of the committee of ministers responsible for energy and water, which started on May 27 and ended on May 30, 2024, in Luanda, Angola.

Malawi is facing high cases of vandalism and the minister believes the issue needs a multisectoral approach as a regional block.

He further mentioned the efforts that Malawi is making towards changing laws to provide stiffer penalties for the perpetrators.

“I must thank the President, who has shown interest in curbing the malpractice by allowing the Parliament to debate about the change of the Act until it was approved. This is the only way to go.”

Concurring with Matola,  Prince Lonkhokhela Dlamini, Minister of Natural Resources and Energy from the Kingdom of Eswatin, said the matter is serious and needs serious attention as it details development in the energy sector among others.
