In fact, the access rate to electricity in Cameroon increased from 29 percent to 49 percent between 2001 and 2013, reports Afrique Jet.

In its report AES-SONEL highlights its achievements made over the last 12 years in terms of electricity supply. AES-SONEL is a public company in charge of energy supply and distribution in the Central African nation.
