Can Africa sort out its electricity problems?
The Africa Kicks bus has now made its way to the capital city of Ghana, Accra. Africa Have Your Say is live from the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons and we'll be talking about how to resolve Africa's electricity problems.
Two days ago the Ghanaian government increased the price of electricity in the country by over 40%. This is in a country grappling with constant black outs where millions fear power cuts will prevent them following the progress of the Black Stars at the World Cup.
These problems are certainly not restricted to Ghana. The Africa Kicks team experienced two consecutive days of power interruptions when we were in Ivory Coast, earlier this week.
