Mozambique: Electricity restored to all Cabo Delgado districts


Mozambique’s publicly owned electricity company, EDM, on Wednesday announced that it has completed the restoration of power supplies to all districts in the northern province of Cabo Delgado that had been affected by terrorist attacks.

The last district to be reconnected to the national grid was Muidumbe, where an EDM brigade completed its work on Monday. Muidumbe had been without electricity since 20 August 2020. The key to restoring power in the northern districts of Cabo Delgado was repairing the sub-station at Awasse in Mocimboa da Praia district,

Electricity restored to all Cabo Delgado Districts which the terrorists had knocked out in August 2020.

Electricity was restored to Mueda district on 3 September and to Mocimboa da Praia town on 11 September, after repairing the power lines from Awasse to Mocimboa da Praia. Nangade district was reconnected on 27 September and Palma on 8 October.

EDM says it financed the restoration of the Cabo Delgado power supply out of its own funds, and with finance from the central government.

“Mobilisation of funds from our cooperation partners is now under way”, said an EDM press release, “for the definitive reconstruction of the electricity system in that part of the country”.

EDM, the release concluded, “is committed to its mission to electrify Mozambique, and it appeals to everyone to mount permanent vigilance against the sabotage of electrical facilities, which hinders the progress of national electrification”.
