HARDSHIP:  ELECTRICITY CHARGES UP  RICE PER BAG- Le 250,000  PALM OIL PER GALLON- Le200, 000  DOLLAR TO LEONES- Le7, 300

Sierra Leoneans are feeling the pinch of a seeming inability of Government in tackling country’s miserable economic condition as goods keep soaring up while minimum wage for workers remain the same.

The adage: “Adding salts to injury” pictures happenings explaining recent increase of electricity charges by management of the Electricity Distribution and Supply Authority (EDSA) without first engaging the consumers.

And by observation has seen citizens leak their wounds in pain, blaming and tagging EDSA as a failing and falling institution.

The surprise as in lips of many is that the current Energy Minister has seemingly transformed himself as spokesperson for EDSA thus disappointedly tagging recent electricity increase to the depreciation of the Leones as reasons prompted, as he puts it “the sudden percentage increase in electricity charges.”

Minister Macaulay defensibly said EDSA is an institution that emanated from the unbundling system of electricity and that as a Public Private Partnership, it has been buying spare parts and oil using United States Dollars, which unavoidably has affected the cost of electricity in the country.

He explained that EDSA is not responsible for the increase of electricity tariff, but to a certain extent it is the Water and Electricity Regulation Commission.

The increase, experts say, has added to existing burden of the people as the cost of a bag of rice (Sierra Leone’s staple food) is going for two hundred and fifty thousand Leones whereas the cost of palm oil per gallon is two hundred Leones.

Of course, cost for cooking oil (per gallon) is One Hundred and Eighty Thousand Leones, while onions per bag is going for one hundred and fifty thousand Leones, and maggie fifteen thousand Leones.

Other basic commodities have equally also skyrocketed.

    I am really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any tips to help fix this issue?

    What you typed there was very logical. I saw your blogs on my Twitter feed. You seem to really understand who you really are deep down. I only got about halfway through this blog post but I’ll take a look at the rest of the article when I get home from work. This is an excellent, an eye-opener for sure! I guess I really got sucked into this website because when I saw the clock I was shocked to see that I have spent nearly 4 or so hours on your blog.

    When I first got a seo consultant I did not know what I was doing. This sure is a whole lot to try and understand and I’m unsure if I can fully understand what you are trying to convey. I named my pet hamster after you! This site resembles my old one. It’s strange how much the industry is changing everyday but I like how much your site always stays current with the latest news and information.
