The High Court in Zambia has quashed a decision by the government to declare a private company’s electricity transmission lines as a common carrier. The BBC reports that Energy Minister Matthew Nkhuwa last year declared infrastructure owned by the Copperbelt Energy Corporation, Zambia’s leading supplier of electricity to the mines, as a “common carrier”. But CEC sued the government, arguing Nkhuwa’s decision amounted to “expropriation” of its infrastructure.
