Nigeria's Power Problems

It's not only Eskom that doesn't do its job. I'm not an Afro-pessimist, but I do believe that people who steal the wealth of others are ruining their country. South Africa, Zimbabwe and Nigeria all suffer from this problem, in different ways.

Hi Donn

It reminds me of my trip to Lagos in 2005 when I went to repair a CT scanner. I was blown away at the time by the fact that the doctor had invested huge money to buy a 3 phase diesel generator to power his machine, (almost as much as the pre-owned scanner) It's hard to believe that this is coming to the mighty SA.
