A tele center owner Abubakar Kamara stated “the electricity supply has been our challenge in running a charging center when you compared what we spend in a week is what people in the district like Bombali are spending for a month for government prepaid charges.”

Abubakar furthered that an unfavorable amount had been spent on maintenance as they usually service their generators for effective and efficiency delivery of services, that situation he said minimized the profitability of their business, as a result of the this he made a plea to the government in order for the appropriate authorities to consider installing electricity facilities, in Kabala Town.
