He said they are calling for a more collaborative effort.

"We’re asking the public to realize that within our power we will want them to have more power . Such instances only make it certain rage and makes it difficult to go into the communities to work”, he added.

"Last Saturday, we had a call that some parts of Kokrobite had a power outage. So we went there to check what the problem was. While checking on the problem, we realized that a tree interfering with our lines so we decided to cut it down.

While cutting the tree a man was approaching with a young girl and they were beckoned not to come close because there were branches falling. I think it didn’t go down well with him, so he got into an argument with the team and used one of the cutlasses used to cut the tree,and attack one of them." he explained.
