Zambia: CEC’s fight for survival rages on
A first attempt by Copperbelt Energy Corporation (CEC) at overturning the statutory instrument issued by energy minister Matthew Nkhuwa on 29 May declaring CEC’s network common carrier, as well as the imposition of a tariff a couple of days later, failed when the High Court denied leave to initiate proceedings on 15 June. CEC will now take the case to the Court of Appeal.
