Man on the run for connecting electricity to 33 structures at Gbetsile


The Afienya District of the Electricity Company of Ghana Limited has discovered that one customer had connected electricity to 33 other structures within the same vicinity at Gbetsile, a suburb of the Greater Accra Region. The latest move by the monitoring team on Tuesday, May 30, 2023, forms part of ECG’s revenue mobilization exercise, which started on Monday, May 29, 2023, and expected to end on Friday, June 2, 2023.

The customer fled upon seeing the ECG personnel.

The District Manager for ECG Afienya District, Ing. Daniel Mensah-Asare briefing the media said as part of the exercise, the team check on the state of the meters to ensure that they are in good condition and working as they are expected to.

“It was during one of such meter checks that the group discovered that the meter, which had been fixed to one of the structures, had wires connecting to surrounding structures,” he said.

He stated that further checks revealed that there had been an illegal connection in the form of a meter bypass and so the customer was not paying the right amount for the power consumed.

The meter is located outside his premise and was therefore accessible to the team.

The owner of the structure fled upon seeing the ECG personnel.
