Burma gets electricity
The people of Burma One and Two communities were in a jubilant mood when officers of the newly formed Electricity Distribution and Supply Authority (EDSA) turned on their transformer for the supply of electricity which has been delayed for over four years..
The Regional Engineer of EDSA, Mr. Peter Vandi, said their mandate is to ensure that the people of this region get the required electricity supply.
He said when he took over as Engineer for the region it has always been a burning desire within him to make light available to the communities especially Burma One and Two.
He stated that the Minister of Energy, Hon. Henry Macauley and his Deputies including his Director who would have loved to be part of the ceremony have all been working hard to see that the county’s energy problem is drastically reduced.
He urged the people of Burma to make quality use of the facility and ensure that the area where the transformer is located was protected from wicked people.
The Public Relations Officer, Mr. Sulaiman Koroma, who moderated the ceremony stated that it took a long time for the people of Burma to get light under the then BKPS but with the coming of EDSA everything would be done promptly in providing them with electricity.
He said with EDSA there will be no more cry of regular power outages as their business is to ensure that the people get quality service.
The Town Chief of Burma One, Chief Morie Kamara, expressed delight, saying that it was a historic moment in his life to witness the commissioning of the light of which they will be the first beneficiaries.
He thanked EDSA for their timely intervention and promised that the new facility accorded them will be well taken care of while they hope for the supply of pipe borne water in the nearest possible time.
