Map of ELECTRICITY Electricity is a major concern now that the counrty is aiming at realising its goals as written in vision 2030. Considering that most of the country is espected to go digital,most areas need to be improved. However most rural areas still are not prepared to realise the coming development.For example in Mbita island,there are no even vehicles and this makes it very difficult fro the residents especially when it comes to travelling needs. There is no any electricity pole that has been placed there and the residents are used to buying paraffin which is considered to be more expensive compared to electricity. The government initiated a programme dubbed (Rural Electrification Program).It has not reached most parts of the country an there is more need to help the citizens of the affected areas to get electricity.
