Why This Visit?

Their visit comes at a strategic time when our modern world is hugely dependent on electricity for its existence and alternate source of energy like solar energy is booming.

In electricity starved Congo, only 7% of the population has access to electricity.

People are dependent on inverters and alternate source of power.

This is where Su-Kam comes in the picture. Adjudged as the ‘most trusted brand of Africa,’ Su-kam has a strong presence in the continent.

Su-Kam has a foothold in

• Nigeria
• Uganda
• Rwanda
• Senegal
• Burkina Farso
• Gambia
• Ghana
• DR Congo
• Tanzania
