Venezuela Donates $22m For Gambia’s Power Grid
Wednesday, September 07, 2011
The Venezuelan government had donated USD 22 million to Gambia, intended to finance the revamping of its power grid and improve its energy supply service, said Lang Sabally, the project leader on Monday.
The funding of the rural electrification project should make possible “the revamping, overhaul, and extension of the power grid in the capital Banjul and its surroundings,” Sabally told a press conference.
The donation will also allow Gambian authorities to install streetlights in some sectors of the capital, AFP reported.
