[www.inewsguyana.com] – Over 1,400 residents of Moraikobai Village, Mahaicony River, are now benefitting from a new electricity supply having received a 344 KVA Perkins generator.
The generator was supplied and installed at a total cost of over $15M to the community which is the only Amerindian Settlement in Region Five. Earlier in 2014 the request was made by residents of the community to the Regional Democratic Council, which further channelled it through the Ministry of Local Government which sought the intervention of President Donald Ramotar.
As a result, on Christmas Day 309 homes were electrified, as well as the hospital and the schools in the area.
Regional Chairman Bindrabhan Bisnauth and other officials from the Engineering Department visited the Community on December 24, 2014, to witness the installation process. [GINA]
