Lawmaker Provides Power To Over 15,000 Gbarpolu Residents
By Emmanuel Mondaye, LINA Gbarpolu County Correspondent

BOPOLU, August 11 (LINA) – Over 15,000 inhabitants of two communities in Bopolu District, Gbarpolu County, who for the past ten years have not had access to electricity, are now receiving power supply courtesy of a lawmaker from the county.

The Chairman of the Alfred G. Koiwood Communities Electrification Project, Mr. Fumba Mulbah, said the power supply was made possible through the kind generosity of Representative Alfred G. Koiwood who provided two generators for the two communities.

Mulbah told the Liberia News Agency recently that the two communities - New Bopolu and Bondi - have not had access to electricity since they were created about ten years ago.

According to Mulbah, the electricity supply was tested on July 24, two days to the celebration of Liberia’s 168th Independence Anniversary, and was warmly received by inhabitants of the beneficiary communities.

He noted that Representative Koiwood plans to undertake similar venture in the not too distant future in the remaining three communities in Bopolu City.

He indicated that the beneficiary communities will be responsible to provide wiring, fuel and maintain the generators to ensure constant supply of electricity.
