THE Rural Electrification Agency (REA) will spend sh1.1b to construct an 11km power line for Khamoto, Mooni, Bungokho, and Mototo in Mbale district.

“Electricity is a key to better health services, water supply, better life and general improvement in living conditions,” said Michael Werikhe, the housing state minister.

Werikhe, also the Bungokho South MP, told the beneficiaries to cooperate with the contractors during the groundbreaking ceremony on Saturday.

Dr. Patricia Litho, the REA spokesperson, said the affected communities would be compensated after the completion of the power extension exercise.

“Are you ready to receive power in Khamoto and Mooni?” Litho asked the residents. “Will you allow our contractors to access your land?”

The residents said they would allow the contractors to carry on their work. Litho also informed residents that the destroyed food, cash crops, and trees would be paid for after the evaluation process.

She assured the beneficiary households that they would be educated not only to light their homes at night but also to use the electricity for productive purposes.

“Electricity costs money and will have to be paid for. Therefore, people must use it economically. “We will educate the beneficiaries how to use electricity efficiently so that it remains affordable,” Litho said.
