The storm, which struck on Thursday, May 16, 2024, damaged the local transformer and displaced electricity poles, resulting in a widespread power outage.

Residents and business owners are struggling with the prolonged blackout, significantly affecting their livelihoods. A local grinding mill owner lamented the impact on his business, stating, “I have lost many customers.

Fridays are usually busy market days, but the ongoing power outage since last Thursday has left us unable to work. The situation has been challenging.”

Richard Bimpeh, the Assembly Member for the Jachie East Electoral area, has been actively seeking to restore power to the community. He visited the ECG branch in Bekwai and spoke with the manager, who mentioned that a memo was being written to request new poles. However, there is no clear timeline for when power will be restored.

ECG cautions against Dangling Electrical Wires during Rainy Periods

“I’ve been to the ECG branch in Bekwai and spoke with the manager. He told me that they are now writing a memo for poles. As of now, we don’t know when the poles will arrive.

I’ve also been to the Bosomtwe DCE office and spoke with the PRO for ECG, and all they said was that there are no poles and no water too. We are pleading with the authorities, especially ECG and NADMO, to come to our aid,” Bimpeh explained.

The community is urging authorities to expedite the restoration of electricity to alleviate their suffering.
