Tanzania: Misenyi Electrification Work Underway

Bukoba — TANZANIA Electric Supply Company (TANESCO) has started installing electricity in Mutukula township, Misenyi District. Kagera Regional TANESCO Manager, Eng. Martin Madulu said the exercise was scheduled to be completed within 45 days.

He also warned people to be wary of dubious characters who pose as TANESCO workers. Eng. Madulu appealed to Kagera residents to reschedule their activities as the region continues with the 40 week power rationing which started on September 1, this year.

He told the "Daily News on Saturday" in an interview that the Uganda Electricity Transmission Company Limited (UETCL), a government power utility, would be conducting major rehabilitation along Masaka-Mutukula power line.

He noted that under the agreement reached between TANESCO and UETCL, Kagera Region will have a normal electricity supply between Mondays and Thursdays, while on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays electricity will be switched off between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

He assured people that places like the Bukoba Referral Hospital, water pumping stations and the Regional Commissioner's Office will be supplied electricity with a standby generator situated at Kibeta Ward. He said the power rationing will last up until June, next year.
