The National Water and Electricity Company NAWEC has revealed the reason for the recent days of power outages across the country.
In a statement, NAWEC said: “NAWEC hereby informs the general public that the current electricity outage is caused by a network fault on the Mile2/Mile5 link causing Karpower engines to trip for protection. This is all due to the first rain of the season, with Wartsila and G1 at Brikama1 already on a planned maintenance.
“G5 Kotu is also shutdown today for a minor but necessary intervention and would not be available until tomorrow. We would like to reassure the public that our engineers are working round the clock to address this issue.
“NAWEC apologizes for the inconvenience this may cause and normal service will be restored as soon as work is completed.”
