LEC Loses US$1.4m Monthly From Power Theft – Officia
By Decontee M. Wesseh

MONROVIA, March 13 (LINA) –An official of the Liberia Electricity Cooperation (LEC) has disclosed that the corporation loses an estimated US$1.4 million monthly due to electricity theft.

According to Chief Executive Officer-In-Charge Joseph T. Mayah, electricity theft has imposed huge financial losses on the corporation, making it difficult to pay
workers, buy fuel to run the generators and maintain equipment.

Mr. Mayah made disclosure Friday at the Ministry of Information regular press briefing in Monrovia.

He said LEC has about 30,000 customers in four zones currently, with 8,000
of them pre-paid customers.

Mayah warned Liberians to desist from electricity theft and pay for services provided by the corporation, adding: “You will not feel good if you are paying while others are in the habit of stealing the current.”

Mayah then appealed to citizens to report anyone caught stealing electricity.
