Zambia and Namibia are next month expected to sign a Memorandum of Understanding -MOU- for the construction of a Gas and Oil pipeline from Windhoek into Lusaka.
Energy Minister PETER KAPALA disclosed this when he paid a courtesy call on Siavonga District Commissioner GEOFFREY JAKOPO at his office.
Mr. KAPALA said the gas will be used for power generation while the oil pipeline will help reduce the cost of petroleum products in the country.
He disclosed that the project, which is expected to take 3 to 4 years to complete, will have its main gas and oil power station in Lusaka.
