Increase in electricity tariff
14 January 2015, 12:27
Privatisation and so on, our hope to this was that it could salvage the epileptic state of power supply in the country. Rather it has favoured and fuelled the increase of the electricity tariff.
That light is constant in some parts and corners of the country while other parts remains in darkness with no light is enough not to give the government or the private or public parastatus the kudos concerning any sort of improvement towards power.
Past administration that ruled the country looted the power sector and nothing has been done over the issue since then. Who could tell why those that use to pay 1000 as electricity bill has suddenly start paying 1500-2000 as electricity bill and yet the state of power has not improved in any way.
What has been the essence of this so-called privatisation? Many are yet to understand the reason for increment in electricity tariff.
