Building a Nation
As South Sudan gets ready to celebrate it's creation as an independent nation, we visit one of the few towns in the country that's got a power plant - a key ingredient for economic development.
Our reporter Nyambura Wambugu talks to the government, and the plant manager about how electricity will power the country's development. Plus Mike chats to Roger Middleton, a specialist in the region of East Africa, about why it matters that the new country develops into a stable economy as quickly as possible.
Also in the show, we consider whether the best way to beat poverty is to simply ask the poor. As ever, tune in and have a listen, then let us know what you think. You can contact the team at email@example.com, or join us on Facebook, the link's below.
