Grand Inga Hydro-energy project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo


AT LONG LAST!!! South Africa drafts a treaty on DRC hydro project

The Congo river is one of the largest in Africa. It is possible to generate electricity using the power of this river to generate enough electricity for most of Africa.
WHY HAS IT TAKEN SO LOOOONG????

Sal slegs suksesvol wees as die land politieke stabiliteit kan bied. 'n Vorige skema, die Inga-Shaba Projek het juis om daardie rede misluk:
The fighting over the control of mineral resources and political instability not only disrupted the operation and maintenance of the Inga facilities, but also economic livelihoods and development. Increasing foreign investment in the expansion of hydroelectricity without addressing the root causes of the political instability will likely to lead history to repeat itself.
