Colombo (News 1st) – Villages in the Giribawa Divisional Secretariat are distressed due to the dysfunctional electric fence near their villages.

The 22 Km fence, which was built in 2006, broke down three months ago when the circuit of the fence was damaged. Residents complain that even though the relevant authorities have been informed no steps have been taken to repair the fence.

The village of Giribawa which is a small village in the Kurunegala district depends on cultivation for their livelihood. The farmers criticise that the absence of the electric fence has led to the destruction of their livelihood by elephants.
