Kroboland Versus ECG: A 10 Minutes Jubilation Turned Into Another Sad Story In The Krobo Area

The current information coming from the Yilo and Manya Krobo communities, in the Eastern Region of Ghana, has revealed that, a great jubilation among the residents in the area has strangely turned into a sad story.

It could be recalled, that there was a recent clash between the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), and the Youth of the Yilo and Myanya Krobo communities, due to installation of prepaid meters in the communities by the ECG.


The installation turned into a clash between the ECG and the Krobo Youth; because the youth of the area rejected the prepaid meters.

This clash led to a complete power cut and total darkness in the entire Kroboland, by the ECG, for close to a month; and bringing many things in the ares to a sudden halt.


After some times of 'heated negotiations', the ECG finally agreed to restore power in the communities.


Today Friday; 19 August, at exactly 5:00pm, the ECG rightly restored power supply in the Krobo communities, and generating great joy in the area.

However, the 10 minutes great jubilation, that came after the electricity restoration, was 'short-lived', after light in the area went off again.


According the ECG source in the area, some transformers caught fire immediately the lights were turned on; and that, it’s likely the light will come again later today or tomorrow. But they are working round the clock to stabilize the situation.
