Mahomba Villagers Have Access to Electricity

By Martha Louis – EM TV News, Lae

As an early Christmas present, 29 houses in Mahomba village in the Mumeng LLG of Bulolo District can now have access to electricity.

The power connection is part of the Bulolo District’s power project that started in 2009.

The project has benefited many rural villagers in the district.

Tudam Wakamdu, a health extension officer who has been working in the village for 36 years, has been using lamps and flashlights to treat his patients.

Wakamdu serves patients at his house. During the night, he uses flashlights and lamps to attend to patients.

He says this is the first time power has reached the villagers, and is happy he can now use powered lighting to treat patients during the night.

Mahomba village is situated along the Wau-Bulolo National Highway. 

This new project will now help villagers to engage in small-scale businesses along the highway.

Villagers can now sell soft drinks to travellers, or store frozen goods in their refrigerators while they take part in other programs in the community.

Since the start of the project in 2009, 400 houses in the Wau-Bulolo District have already received power.

The 29 houses in Mahomba village are the latest to benefit under the district’s power project.

The district spends almost K100,000 just to get power into every household in the district.
