By Jurugo Emmanuel Ogasto


Western Bahr El-Ghazal State capital Wau, is set to get electricity as Trinity Energy Company Limited on March 14, 2024, successfully conducted a test run of the ‘first meter’ powered electricity at the State House.

The local authorities expressed their delight and optimism about the prospects of having a fully functioning electricity system in Wau.

Samuel Nicola Cornelio, the Minister of Information and Communication of Western Bahr El-Ghazal State, acknowledged that while the power supply is not yet fully operational, the state government and its partners are working together to ensure Wau is brightly illuminated.

“Yes, the launch was done but it has not yet officially invigorated, I want to thank Trinity company for the great work,” he said.

He extended his gratitude to Trinity Energy Company for their contribution to the project.

He said one of the primary benefits of the electricity installation is the improved safety it brings to the streets of Wau.

The Minister stated that the presence of streetlights will reduce the risk of accidents and provide a safer environment for pedestrians and motorists alike, allowing people to travel at all hours with increased confidence.

Minister Cornelio assured the community that once the electricity is officially launched, it will be affordable for all residents.

The focus is on making electricity accessible to everyone, thereby enhancing the quality of life for the people of Wau.

The illumination of public spaces will promote safety and security, enabling various outdoor activities to take place at night.

“We all know that there are thugs who move at night, this light will make work easy for security to work and do their jobs,’’ he said.

He called upon the community and stakeholders to actively participate in the ongoing progress of the region.

Governor Sarah Cleto Rial of Western Bahr El-Ghazal State also expressed her appreciation for Trinity Energy Company’s initiative.

In a social media post, she commended the company and shared her hope that Wau would soon be free from darkness, allowing the people of the state to benefit from the services provided by the electric power supply.
