Terrorist attacks in northern Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado province have left five districts in the dark since last September, affecting about 25,000 customers in the region, local daily newspaper O Pais reported on Wednesday.
According to the report citing the state power company EDM’s Provincial Director Gildo Marques, these are the districts of Muidumbe, Mueda, Nangade, Palma and Mocimboa da Praia.
“These districts are without power because our lines are out and probably, we have problems in the local substation,” Marques was quoted as saying.
Marques added that the affected districts will remain in the dark indefinitely, as there are still no predictions for the restoration of the electricity.
Due to the security situation, EDM technicians are no longer on the ground and in addition to the damages and losses, several projects for the expansion of electric grid were also forced to be suspended by the attacks, said the report. Enditem
