Tanzania to supply electricity to Kenyan bordertown

Jul 29, 1997 02:00 AM

July 13, 1997 Tanzania Electric Supply Company (TANESCO) will soon start to supply electricity to the north-west border town of Isebania in Kenya. TANESCO Managing Director, Mr. Baruanyi Luhanga said this recently when he was addressing Isebanian leaders after touring the town for market evaluation and work assessment. Mr. Luhanga assured the leaders, including John Egesa, the district commissioner for Kurya, where the Kenyan town Isebania is located, that supply of electricity would begin immediately after problems such as way clearing, the taxation of the electrical materials and equipment are sorted out.
The directive to TANESCO to electrify Isebania was given by President Benjamin Mkapa in Sirari, the border town in Tanzania's Mara Region when he joined Kenyan President Daniel Arap Moi in inaugurating the portion of the road from Sirari in Tanzania to Migori in Kenya. The electrification of border towns is one of the issues underscored last year when the presidents of Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda met to discuss the revival of the East African Community. It was agreed that residents of the Kenyan border town should be supplied with electricity from the nearest power station at the same price as Tanzanian locals.
