Jeezus!

Missing parts of 'Britain's Got Talent'. The end of the world is nigh!

And that lot in Ghana think they've got problems? They just don't know which way is up do they?

Extract from African Spectrum 11th April.

Ghanaians are facing a very serious crisis. It involves erratic power supply that makes people spend their nights in darkness, interferes with their ability to lead normal daily lives, endangers their health and safety, and hurts them economically.

Almost on a daily basis, electric power to homes and businesses is interrupted without warning. Sometimes the power is turned on and off several times a day, just as kids having fun with a light switch would do; other times it’s off the whole day, bringing civilized life and economic activities to a screeching halt as food items in refrigerators and freezers go bad, creature comforts such as electric fans and air conditioners become useless in the sweltering tropical heat, and popular pastimes like watching TV or playing music on the entertainment systems are rendered practically impossible.

Business places that don’t have alternative power sources are forced to either shut down or suspend operations. And just imagine the catastrophic impact the erratic power supply has on vitally important, life and death establishments like hospitals and other medical facilities and their patients.
