This past week has been terrible for me. There’ve been frequent power cuts that disrupt everything. That’s why I’ve been unable to blog for so long. We still don’t have power at home and I don’t know how I’m going to finish my various assignments before Friday.
For those outside Ghana, we’re in the middle of a national energy crisis that has forced the sole energy distribution company (ECG) to embark upon what it terms “load shedding”. That means power goes off for twelve hours every three days or so. Retailers of power generators are gleeful though as they are making record sales… economic self-interest huh?
I’ll have more to say about ECG and VRA later this week. Right now, I have to go get some supper before the lights go off again.
