|GAMBIAN CURRENCY THAT DWELLS NAWEC|
The Ministry of Defence has the highest debt among the lot.
Government-related accounts and parastatals, including the national broadcaster - GRTS, the Green Industries, and the Presidential Villa, also owe NAWEC a total of more than fifty million dalasis (D50,000,000). GRTS alone owes over fourteen million dalasis (D14,000,000) to NAWEC.
As at the end of 2010 the company was owing its major suppliers D830 million, up from over D378 million it was owing them by 2008.
To assuage its predicament and meet its operational obligations, NAWEC has increased its electricity tariffs.
