The Prime Minister, who is responsible for energy, has been proactive in the execution of his duties. Last November he commissioned a 900-kilowatt generator in Kwakwani, to increase power production to 24-hour electricity in the community.

This year, KUI will receive a total of $490M in subvention, according to last month’s budget.  

Following the installation, the Prime Minister and Minister Edghill held a community meeting with residents of the community at the Kwakwani Workers Club, to update them on Government’s plans and to listen to their concerns.

He also used the opportunity to introduce the newly installed Board of Directors of KUI to the community.
