On Thursday February 15th 2018 Orange celebrated another milestone in their quest for improving cellular accessibility to remote regions that were previously ignored.

Alongside Director of Consumer and Corporate Affairs, Mr.  Abdul Kuyateh,  who stood in for Director General,  Victor Finley and Chairman & Commissioner Mommoh Konteh, Orange launched yet another site at Dambala in the Selena Chiefdom, Bo District.

The highlight of the event however was  the address by Mr. Kuyateh whose message showed the government’s continuing efforts through National Telecommunications Commission to improve communication accessibility through effective regulation and monitoring of telecommunications companies in the country.

“On behalf of Chairman Momoh Kemoh Konte and the Commission as a whole, I have the pleasure of declaring this site open” Director Kuyateh said in cutting the tape to the 90 meter high cell site.

He encouraged the community to take ownership of the infrastructure by providing security and keeping it clean at all times.

Mr Kuyateh further educated the audience on the importance of SIM Card registration to all subscribers and for national security.

Director of Consumer Affairs for Orange, Jestina Betts, disclosed that the company has invested millions of dollars to improve and expand connectivity across the country. She vowed to put consumers at the forefront of what Orange does.

Paramount Chief Desmond Kargobai of Selena Chiefdom, expressed gratitude to NATCOM, the Government and Orange for connecting his subjects, and pleaded for more communities to be connected in the Bo North and Bo North-East axis.

The occasion was lightened up by the beauty of the Mende cultural display.
