    Hmmm. how are the mighty fallen. the same SA nigeria helped to escape the shackles of apartheid, Nigeria, the big brother that ensured every country on the continent got their independence and could sustain their economy.
    How did we get to this sorry state that SA now wants to help us overcome power generation issues, with all our resources and brains.
    A sad testimonial indeed!
