The Management Team of the Liberia Electricity Corporation (LEC) has been summoned to appear before the House of Representatives in connection with what the lawmakers called selective distribution of electricity to residents in Monrovia and its environs.
The House of Representatives took the decision following a communication from Montserado County District #8 Representative Acarous M. Gray. The LEC Management is expected to appear today.
In his communication to his colleagues Tuesday, Representative Gray said several communities in Monrovia are yet to get electricity, despite huge government and donors financial supports to the LEC.
Gray wants the LEC Management Team to provide information on why they are delaying the provision of electricity in the densely populated areas in Monrovia.
Rep. Gray observes that poles are being planted in various communities in Monrovia by LEC for the past eight months without tangible results that would bring relief to the citizens.
"Electrical lines are not on those poles thereby giving rise to extreme criminal activities in Monrovia not only that, houses are being burnt either by generators or by candle light," Rep. Gray indicated.
He told his colleagues that the issue of providing electricity to the citizens is critical. He said LEC management must be made to explain why the residents in Monrovia and surrounding areas are being denied electricity.
