Lethem power company forced to import fuel from Brazil
-trail bridge still not fixed
The Lethem Power Company was yesterday forced to import fuel from neighbouring Brazil to prevent blackouts as a collapsed bridge on the Georgetown to Lethem trail which has fuel tankers stalled has still not been repaired.
However, some communities were already without power yesterday and residents are wondering for how much longer.
A resident of St Ignatius told Stabroek News that his community was without power all Saturday night and up to press time yesterday.
