Residents of the Dakar Neighbourhood in Douala say ENEO is doing more harm than good

It has been weeks now that residents of the Dakar neighbourhood in the economic capital of Cameroon have been complaining of frequent electricity seizures. They say, ENEO, the lone electricity company in the country is doing more harm than good.

An inhabitant of the neighbourhood recounts what they go through every day as far as electricity is concerned.

She says “Electricity here is very elliptical. Sometimes it seizes for weeks. During such periods shop owners make lots of losses and housewives suffer because their food gets bad. Those who operate Barbing Shops, Internet Cyber Cafes and others are left to gnash their teeth. When the electricity manages to come back, it comes with high voltages and blows up household appliances like Refrigerators, Television sets and a host of many others”.

On the other hand, the electricity company has blamed the situation on a damaged transformer. They have promised to solve the problem but have stressed that inhabitants of the area should be on the alert and put off electrical appliances each time there is blackout in order not to lose them.
