Electricity Minister: Sabotage attacks are politically-motivated

 Yemen Post Staff

Yemeni Minister of Electricity Dr. Saleh Sumai said that the sabotage attacks targeting the power supply lines and oil pipelines are politically-motivated.
In an interview with the state-run television, Sumai said that the current crisis in the energy sector caused by the repeated sabotage attacks is triggered by the political faults of the former regime and stressed that the National Unity Government (NUG) would avoid committing the same mistakes.
The Marib province, he explained, is not connected to the national electricity network and revealed that the NUG is working to provide Marib, where the biggest power station in the country is based, with 20 megawatt of power and make it a part of the national grit.
Speaking about the NUG's resolve to protect the public services, Sumai pointed out that the government is going to deal with the sabotage attacks as criminal acts and that it would secure the power supply lines no matter what the sacrifices would be.
"Yemen has changed and people must realize the change and adopt to it," he said.Yemen only has 800 megawatt of energy while Somalia, its neighbor which is harshly-hit by civil wars and conflicts, has 1200 megawatt of power, according to the minister.
Sumai noted that the power transmission lines have been subjected to attacks in certain areas and by certain people since the eruption of the revolution which triggered a wave of unrest throughout the country. He further stressed that before February of last year, the power lines have never come under sabotage attacks.
