The official said so when justifying the reasons for the constant cuts of electricity in Luanda, during a visit to the substations as part of the Soyo combined cycle power project.

"Constant power cuts in Luanda has to do with the increase of consumption that contributes to the increase of deficits, since the supply capacity is constant", explained the minister.
