Aggrieved residents of Jallah Town Community in Monrovia on Tuesday besieged the main entrance of the capitol building to protest over the lack of electricity in their community.
The action of the aggrieved residents is said to have derived from the alleged failure by the Liberia Electricity Cooperation(LEC) to restore power in their community.
The aggrieved residents through its chairman, Patrick Karmoh claimed that they have been in the dark for more than two years since the outage of power in the area.
Karmoh said they have written the leadership of Montserrado County, including Abraham Dillon, Saah Joseph and other officials of the county, but to no avail.
He alleged that Mont. district 8 Representative, Acarous Gray has been perpetually silent on the matter, something which prompted their protest at the capitol building.
Karmoh said if nothing is done between now and the 5th of February, the government should have themselves to be blamed.
“I give them from now to the 5th or they should have themselves to be blamed,” Karmoh said.
At the same time, Karmoh has attributed the situation to his community being spotlighted as one of the major power theft communities in Monrovia.
Jallah’s Town community is situated in Central Monrovia and is being represented at the House of Representatives by Montserrado county district 8 lawmaker, Acarous Gray of the ruling Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC).
