Comoros: The international donors to rescue the National Water and Electricity Company




While electric power cuts are becoming increasingly numerous in the archipelago, the African Development Bank and the World Bank and the French Development Agency (AFD) have decided to come to the chevet of the Ma-Mwe , the national water and electricity company.
 
The African Development Bank which has allocated in 2014 a loan about 20 million dollars, should start operating this month the development of technical standards of Ma-Mwe. The plan is to allow the on-site review of the nine generators, buying new equipment, network rehabilitation and employee technical training.
 
ADB has also released a budget of 4 million dollars to rehabilitate and further development of the water distribution network. Works that complement the 7.3 million dollars provided by the French Development Agency (AFD) to modernize the sector.
 
The World Bank handles for its part to participate in funding for an amount of 5 million dollars and is devoted to improving the functioning of financial management cogs in the Ma-Mwe.
 
These various projects - which must be completed within three years and expected to be realized on the three islands of the archipelago, should lead the Ma-Mwe to eventually serve properly electricity and drinking water to a large part of the Comorian population.
