‘BPL, Let There Be Light’

Simeon Hall

Outspoken Bishop Simeon Hall is demanding Bahamas Power and Light (BPL) to turn on the lights, as he said the capital’s electricity service has reached “a crisis level and must be made a national priority.”

Yesterday, Bishop Hall, who is also pastor emeritus at New Covenant Baptist Church, said electricity to households and businesses has become unreliable and is interrupted for far too often and far too long. 

“Traffic lights are off regularly and even church services and funerals are made to endure heat and darkness. As far as the sick and the elderly are concerned, we are touching the danger zone as these persons are the most affected and the most disadvantaged” Bishop Hall explained.

Bishop Hall called on BPL to fix this vexing issue before “this darkness causes someone’s death.”

He said, “The blame for this dark period in BPL’s service is hardly tenable and must be laid at the feet of management and those who placed them there ought not to reward incompetence.

“Is this not the board that was brought in because another board had failed?  When politicians blame each other it never helps – the citizens are always adversely impacted.”
