310812 Powerless Buka
By Aloysius Laukai
The so called temporary headquater of the Autonomous region of Bougainville, Buka Town is now a powerless town since the PNG POWER'S generator developed engine trouble last weekend.
And their small standbye gen sets cannot meet the demand for electricity by Buka's other mini towns of Kokopau, Sohano,Kubu and Hutjena and not forgeting villages getting power under the rural electricity program.
Their so called load shedding does not even cover the backstreets as we have been without power since yesterday..now going into 48hrs without power.
And two local radio stations completly out of service the entire population is also in the dark.
As darkness falls we are totaly hopeless till the next morning.
