Tuesday, March 19, 2002Darkness in Paradise
Yesterday afternoon at around 3pm, the province of Aklan and some parts of Antique was in total darkness. NAPOCOR (National Power Corporation) cut off these provinces electricity due to the unpaid debt of AKELCO (Aklan Electric Cooperative), aklan's power distributor, amounting to P105 Million!!!
Boracay, my favorite island in the country (as of now) is also part of Aklan. Holy week is just around the corner and the island will be packed with people. It would be so disappointing for people like me who had their plane tickets and accomodations reserved 2 months before just to find the island in total darkness. We're all looking forward to enjoying the beach and partying every night.
And what about the people residing in the island and the resort owners who have been religiously paying their electric bills? Not everyone has generators and besides, generators can only do so much and go for so long.
The question is: Where did AKELCO bring all the money?
Tsk tsk tsk. This country is so full of corruption.
Please God, Let there be light in Boracay Ü
