Inhabitants of Yaounde will once again receive constant power supply in their homes and business premises in 72hours, Water and Energy Minister Gaston Essomba Eloundou has said.
The Minister was on an evaluation visit to the substation under rehabilitation at the Melen neighborhood, on 23rd August 2019.
Restoring power supply will however be progressive . As a security measure, neighborhoods will be supplied power in turns.
Officials say, progressive power supply will favour monitoring of the control system of the structure under rehabilitation.
Meanwhile, SONATREL and ENEO officials affirm that the entire structure will be completely rehabilitated within the 7days deadline issued by government.
The officials have been working round the clock since the station was consumed by fire on Tuesday 7th August 2019 ( link).

But from the evening hours of Tuesday, load shedding will become a thing of the past, and the city will once again beam with lights.
