High voltage cables over house lot

Dear Editor,

Guyana Power and Light on September 8 planted two high voltage electrical cables over my premises at Lot 1, Hydronie,  Parika East Bank  Essequibo in order to supply a housing scheme with electricity. These cables have been planted in a hazardous manner and pose a risk to the residence.

Ever since this was done the owner has made numerous calls and complaints to the offices  at  Vreed-en-Hoop, Sophia and Main Street, only to end up going around in a circle to an officer  who seems bent on harassment. The pleas were ignored and the owner’s democratic rights were denied, since to date  nothing has been done about the matter.

I am applealing to the relevant authorities to look into this immediately before it is too late.

Yours faithfully,
H Narine
