Makeni Turns Dark City

By Isatu Joleyn Jalloh

There is reports of acute power outage in the northern provincial headquarter city of Makeni, leaving residents worried for the past two weeks.

According to residents, the Electricity Distribution and Supply Authority (EDSA) has done nothing to salvage the situation. Even before the acute power outage, residents complained that the supply was inadequate and rationed which was not the case sometime back.

Business people in the township are reported to be very disturbed over this ugly development in the face of hardship.
It is not yet known whether EDSA is going to allow the hometown of His Excellency the President to remain as dark as hell for the next couple of weeks.

“This is disgraceful,” said one Mohamed Santigie Koroma.

However, according to EDSA the Bumbuna Hydro Dam is currently shut down and undergoing maintenance.
