Namibia: Peugeot Will Export 'Once Issues Are Resolved'

The managing director of the National Water and Electricity Company (NAWEC), Nani Juwara has said that despite the challenges, he is optimistic of providing more reliable and stable energy supply in the country than in the past.

Mr. Juwara while speaking in an exclusive interview with The Point revealed that as of now, the company has more generation capacity available as opposed to the demand.

“We can courteously tell the public that we are optimistic that power supply going forward would be more reliable and stable than in the past. As we speak we have more generation capacity available now as opposed to the demand.”

MD Juwara was quick to add that they are still faced with problems in the transmission and diffusion network, but noted that they are doing everything possible to address the situation.

Mr. Juwara who was appointed NAWEC MD after the removal of Robinson in July stated that going forward, there is a lot of hope especially after the implementation of the ongoing projects that the issue of instability of electricity will definitely and significantly go down.

“It might not be 100% because it is difficult for any country, especially a third-world country. But we are very optimistic that we have a number of projects that are all geared towards resolving the energy problems in the country.”

According to him, the problem of water and electricity in the Gambia is a historical problem, noting that a lot of efforts have been put into the sector to be able to stabilise the menace.
