Villages In Senegal, Mali And Mauritania Gain Access To Electricity
The Senegalese Minister of Water and Sanitation, H.E. Serigne Mbaye Thiam, has announced that 200 Malian, Mauritanian and Senegalese communities now have access to electricity thanks to an $81.5 million rural electrification project financed by the Organization for the Development of the Senegal River (OMVS).
According to Tamsir Ndiaye, Director General of OMVS, the organization plans to “do everything to increase the maximum production to be distributed at the level of the Member States of the OMVS to increase the supply and enable these States not only to have sufficient current but also cheaper current.”
The project is connected to a hydroelectric power station in Manantali, which is 300 Km away from Mali’s capital city.
