From Daily News, Dar es Salaam

MORE than 200 residents in Mwanza will be supplied with electricity through Rural Energy Agency (REA) programme in this financial year, the Deputy Minister for Energy and Minerals, Mr Adam Malima said here yesterday.

Mr Malima said that the government through Tanzania Electric Supply Company (Tanesco), was looking for more funds to implement the project which was meant to ensure that rural areas still in darkness would be connected to the national grid.
