-Margibi Supt Says Work on Distribution Line Begins
The Superintendent of Margibi County has revealed that the county is poised to supply many homes with electricity in the next seven to eight months.
Making the disclosure during an interview Monday in Weala, Superintendent John Zubah Buway said modality is being worked out for the implementation of the project in the county.
He stated that LEC has already embarked on the planting of electric poles along the main street of Kakata and it is also expected to be extended to Weala where the Salala Rubber Corporation (SRC) is situated.
According to him, LEC has also begun the process of building a mini power station at the Morris’s Farm area in Todee District in Montserrado County to enhance the distribution of electricity to the county.
The Superintendent narrated that the project will see the distribution of electricity to the various communities in Kakata. He explained that the coming of electricity to the county will serve as a multiplier of development because there will be smaller entities and enterprises that will open up in Margibi.
Superintendent Buway indicated that this will also give people who have refrigerators and freezers to store their foods, adding “that will help our people develop”.
Buway added that we are living in an era where without electricity people are constrained to use their cell phones to get light.
He stated that the project is being supported by the Government of Liberia with the biggest support coming from donors including the International Monitory Fund (IMF) and the World Bank among others.
Superintendent Buway at the same time urged Margibians to be patient and supportive to the process as more good things are underway for Margibi County.
