Improvement of electricity supply in Bo and Kenema is happening after poles and cables landed in Sierra Leone to replace the ageing electricity network.
Latest reports say the first shipment of electricity poles and cables and other installation materials have landed in the country to kick-start the replacement of the old power distribution networks in Bo in the south and Kenema in the east of the country.
For over a decade, the people of Bo and Kenema have been yearning for sustainable power supply.
During the 2018 Presidential Elections Campaign, President Julius Maada Bio promised the people of Bo and Kenema that he would bring development to them.
In a bid to fulfilling his promises made, during his first official thank you tour in Bo and Kenema, President Bio has started the provision of 24 hours sustainable electricity supply in the two towns and the surrounding villages.
As the government continues the good bilateral relationship with foreign countries, the World Bank has agreed to supply fuel/diesel as a bonus to Bo and Kenema to enjoy electricity supply during the course of the work as they install the cables, poles and transformers to a international level.
