The Shareholder
(Government) is taking the
necessary steps to get GEBE
organizational structure
back in place. In the past
months GEBE has been
expressing their grievances
with the Supervisory Board,
and the operations within
the company.
Firstly Government has
tarnished the contract with
the Supervisory Board. The
process have already begun
to have a new Supervisory
Board instated. The supervisory board is put in place
to execute the initiatives
placed by the Shareholder/
Government which is why
according government it is
very essential to instate the
right persons in that position.
Patrice Gumbs
William Brooks and Veronica
Jansen-Webster are the candidates for the two top positions in GEBE, CEO and COO.
On Tuesday January 15, 2016
the staff of GEBE was invited
to meet with Honorable Minister Meyers and Parliamentarian Maurice Lake. There
the employees got an update on the matters relating
to the organization and also
got the opportunity to pose
any questions.
On Friday April 15, 2016 the
Minister took a tour of the
GEBE power plant, distribution building and main build-
ing to get a better understanding of how the organization operates. The tour was
guided by the GEBE power
plant manager Mr. Kenrick
Chittick.
Mr. Chittick showed the Minister the five buildings where
19 engines are situated. Of
the 19 engines, 6 are not operational. Of the six, two engines are on standby, 2 are
awaiting repair and the last
two have been there since
1987 and are to be broken
down and shipped out. In
addition Engine #20 will arrive
on the island later this year
and is expected to be operational by December 2016. The
Minister also received some
explanation regarding the
operations on the plant, the
technical equipment used,
future goals and some
difficulties the power
plant are facing.
The Minister was surprised at the conditions
the GEBE plant employees
work under and the sacrifices they make. The Minister applauds and appreciates their efforts and
hard work.
Mr. Chittick expressed his
appreciation for the fact
that Minister Meyers is
the first Minister in years
to show interest in the
operations of the GEBE
power plant, located in
the Cay Bay area.
The seven candidates government submitted to replace the board were all
approved;

Oral Gibbes
