Power utility firm Zesco got something of a taste of its own medicine when a match involving its club Zesco United and visiting Red Arrows was postponed due to a power blackout. The match was stopped in the early minutes of the first half when power went leaving the stadium in total darkness in a match that kicked off at 19:00 hours and live on pay television channel SuperSport.
